Today’s Indie: Sing to the Mountain / Elephant Revival
‘let the fires burn tonight / let the jugs of wine get drunk’
Ring Around the Moon / Elephant Revival
‘and I can hear it in the wind / hear it rise and descend’
The beginning of summer has left me flushed with folk fever, and I am currently sweating over my newest obsession, Elephant Revival, a porch-ready quintet from Colorado that I discovered amidst cheap wine and good conversation with friends Friday evening.
The slow burning duet on Ring Around the Moon has me pining for yesteryear a la The Civil Wars, while Sing to the Mountain has more of a Trampled by Turtles kick to it, with sliding strings, banjo strums and hum along harmonies. Feel good music at its finest, oh the simple things in life. #indie / tory
