After a pair of releases for the Hefty label, Chicago’s EUPHONE arrive at Jade Tree with a versatile album so rhythmically heady and intricate, we had a hard time believing they were only a duo. As the rhythm section for Heroic Doses, drummer Ryan Rapsys and bassist Nick Macri provide a solid backbone for the guitar aerobics of Five Style’s Bill Dolan. As EUPHONE, however, the twosome prove themselves as more than just an atypical drums-n-bass unit, but as talented multi-instrumentalists who are as comfortable rocking a nightclub as they are an after-hours party.
