ELEPHANTS: Strange Waves: CD

Sophomore effort from these Boston, MA locals finds the band expanding somewhat from the template set forth on their first full-length. The overall feeling is a little more subdued and, dare I say, melancholic? Lauren Garant’s vocals continue to compliment the shards of atmospheric guitar that Ryan Young serves up. Comparisons to Dinosaur Jr. and/or Guided By Voices are not totally unwarranted, though not entirely accurate either.
