Editorial Reviews

Elf Power formed in 1994 and over the last 19 years have released twelve albums, two eps, a handful of singles, while touring North America, Europe, and Japan many times. Albums such as 1998's Dave Fridmann-produced "A Dream In Sound" and 2008's collaboration with the late Vic Chesnutt, "Dark Developments" have cemented the bands' reputation as the finest purveyors of-  modern melodic psychedelic folk rock around. Their latest album, "Sunlight On The Moon" combines the scuzzy, sleazy recording qualities of their early lo-fi masterworks with their powerful live bombast, with experiments in Kraftwerk-styled/Eno-esque drum machine minimalism, into a seamless, perfectly flowing whole. The album's release in October coincides with American tour dates with the recently revived Neutral Milk Hotel, with whom Elf Power did their first big national tour 15 years ago in 1998! Many more headlining shows throughout America and Europe are planned for the fall and spring. Singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger and longtime collaborator multi-instrumentalist Laura Carter are joined by James Huggins(Of Montreal/Great Lakes) on bass, and Peter Alvanos on drums, though all the members play a wide variety of instruments on the recordings. Longtime collaborator Bryan Poole (Of Montreal) still joins the band on guitar at live shows.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
Not to work the nostalgia tip, but I have many fond, pre-Millennium memories of driving around to Elf Power. The combination of power pop, dreamy vocals, just enough hooks and what sometimes sounded like power tools make a perfect mix. This new album continues in this vein, but to channel a recent NPR write-up, it's darker, more mature and in that respect in many ways more compelling than past efforts for me.

Needless to say, I've been driving around with this playing at ear-splitting volumes, and loving it.

This album presents the best of the ATHENS, GA band that mixes Dio, REM and NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL with elf like lyricism.

Format: Audio CD
11th album from Atlanta, Georgia band who play fuzzy, mid-fi psychedelic pop/folk with
charmingly captivating melodies. The best of these songs has a subtle sort of gliding, magical
pop-hook allure that you wish would never end. Members & guests have played in Of Montreal,
Dark Meat, Nana Grizol, Great Lakes, The New Sound Of Numbers, Dream Boat, The Empties. Recalls bands like Olivia
Tremor Control, Robyn Hitchcock, Guided By Voices, The Apples In Stereo, Almost Charlie, Bill Baird. Trippy twee power pop
for the retro-psych paisley set. –Nice-

Athens is approximately 60 miles east of Atlanta. Not really that close.
