Toss The Elks Into The Sun
Heavy hitters Tee Pee Records have a couple of releases this month that Im really looking forward to. The first one is by Brooklyn belters Elks, releasing their debut LP Destined For The Sun. It supposedly features an abstract conceptual theme chronicling "the history of a tribe of nomadic Space Vikings", telling the story of "peaceful inhabitants of a planet colonized by an expanding empire," incorporating a myriad of strange sci-fi ephemera including a "super computer" at the end of the universe dubbed "The Wizard." Ok...all I know is that it sounds pretty amazing, a sludge punk effort that remains true to their lean, sinewy form, clocking at at under half an hour. Try these two slabs of fury below.
