Some Bodies Electric is an album of five multilayered, solo electric guitar compositions that subtly change and evolve out of repetition to create moving, richly-textured, auditory soundscapes.

Allan J. Kimmel (aka Departure Street) is an American/French solo electric guitarist based in Paris France. He plays alternative ambient and neo-folk music with shoegaze & American blues underpinnings.

Mark Kozelek

"Departure Street creates tranquil electric guitar meditations that sprawl and explore like the hungry tendrils of an aggressive ivy.

Kimmel, who hails from both America and France, creates vividly surreal instrumental soundscapes, which are comprised purely of his multitracked and effects-laden solo guitar. Kimmel takes his unique brand of psychedelic loner-folk, and stirs in elements of reverb-heavy ambient music, cosmic American primitivism and even some Middle Eastern folk traditions. The resulting brew is a heady yet mellow mix that glides along with a pleasant ease."
