If you caught Angel Olsen‘s mesmerizing set at XPN Fest this summer, or even if you didn’t, chances are you’ll want to snag a last-minute ticket to the singer-songwriter’s headlining show at Union Transfer tonight. Olsen’s playing two nights in Philly, but tomorrow’s show is already sold out. White Magic opens both shows. Olsen’s 2016 release My Woman was voted one of The Key’s top albums last year, and she followed it up this year with Phases, a collection of rarities and B-sides. Watch Angel Olsen’s video for “Special” below and ...

Whither Festivus: Liverpool Psych Fest 2017 Recap

Of all the festivals in all the world, the one I’ve most wanted to go to since I was first made aware of its existence several years ago is Liverpool Psych Fest (official proper name: the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia). After many years of drooling over the lineup and dreaming of being there, this year’s festival finally became my reality. And friends, I’m still glowing in the aftermath of this late September treasure. 

It seems only fitting that in a city so often pointed to for its lasting contribution to modern music, a festival of such monumental cool is ...

Good Cover Version: Elephant Stone does Tom Petty

Good Cover Version: Elephant Stone does Tom Petty

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

It’s weird thinking that we are now living in a post-Tom Petty world. Petty’s music was engrained into the musical consciousness of a great number of us, from a very early age, and the idea of him being gone feels wrong. What the man did for songwriting, though, will ...

Remix Fix: Elephant Stone/Young Galaxy

Remix Fix: Elephant Stone/Young Galaxy

In theory I like the idea of the remix: taking someone else’s song and tweaking it the way you want it done. It’s a great means for completely redoing something, and for reinterpretation. Sometimes remixes go awry, and sometimes they’re better than the original. Remix Fix is all about the happy medium when a remix totally nails it and makes a song that much better.

If you’re not already familiar with them (and if you’re not, get to it!), Montreal-based Elephant Stone makes some rather dreamy psych rock. The trio of daytrippers is fixing to release a remix EP, Remix ...

Live Review: Elephant Stone @ Black Cat, 8/11/13

Source: Fuzzy Logic

How shall I put this? To say I was excited to see Montreal’s Elephant Stone at the Black Cat would be one heck of a massive understatement. They’d managed to elude me, but thankfully the stars finally aligned, and I can now contentedly report that it was well worth the wait.

I was sold pretty much as soon as the band took the stage, strolling out to recorded sitar grooves and a visual display of undulating orange, purple, and green circles. But it wasn’t just a dizzying swirl that got my attention. Over the course of their set, the band ...
