Elf Power – A Dream in Sound

17 06 2010

Listened: Wednesday June 16

As I mentioned earlier, Elf Power is a big collective of hippie musicians from Athens, Georgia who play well-constructed but somewhat tripped out music. I think A Dream In Sound is even more similar-sounding to their Elephant 6 label-mates Neutral Milk Hotel than Creatures. In a way they also sound a lot like GZM, especially in that they have some dreamy instrumentals.

This is definitely the style of music that was considered indie and cool about 10 years ago. Though big collectives of musicians like Arcade Fire and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are still flourishing in “cool music” circles today.
