Editorial Reviews

Review

Always Interesting, and often fantastic. --Popmatters

Product Description

Elf Power formed in 1994 and, over the last 16 years,
has released ten albums, two EPs, and a handful of
singles while also touring America, Europe, and Japan.
The Athens pioneers have now readied their tenth studio
album for release a self-titled, dozen-song sonic
totem that represents the group s spiritual endurance
and continued relevance as the flagship band of the
celebrated psych-rock scene they helped forge over a
decade and a half ago.
The new record conveys a unique synthesis of expansion
and space as deft rhythmic interplay, thoughtful
instrumental flourishes, and subtle hands at the mixingboard
all contribute to the Elves lithe, powerful folk-rock
and the frank, beautiful lyrical exposition that s to be
expected from head songwriter Andrew Rieger.

Format: Audio CD
This grows on you. Insects, dirt, bones, ghosts haunt this disc, dedicated to the late Vic Chestnutt. Elf Power, by self-titling their tenth (!) album, appear to let the churning, restless sounds backing wistful, literary, and yearning lyrics sum up their ambitions. The modesty of this homemade album, full of whirring keyboards, efficient percussion, chiming guitars, and processed snippets, continues their recent direction.

That is, progressing from the medieval instrumentation of such as "When the Red King Comes," this shifts away from the dense, early-Eno feel of their work towards a more pastoral approach, from "Walking with the Beggar Boys" onward. While I favor their earlier albums for their daring swirl, they have matured gracefully into a more direct manner of delivering stories as sung and played. With no lyric sheet, you have to pay attention; the graceful thoughts come slowly through the speakers.

There are still hints of their more experimental period, as on the psychedelic riff of "Boots of Lead," or the hints of a waltz on "Little Black Holes." For a band that's been around Athens, Georgia so long, they still stock their songs with textures, even if not as immediately "out of time" as their earlier work showed. Part of the Elephant 6 collective, five members are backed by as many backing musicians. I'm not sure who plays what, as the album credits are sparse, but repeated listenings open up depth in what feels at first a pared-down delivery.

Early R.E.M.'s recalled on "Like a Cannonball," with its echoes and distortions, but most songs sway with a more straightforward musical backing of, as the album progresses, increasingly literary narratives in a few minutes each.
