Album Review

The aptly titled A Dream in Sound is Elf Power's creative breakthrough — inventively produced by the great Dave Fridmann, the record is a great leap forward from the previous When the Red King Comes, boasting a bright, majestic sheen (the richest to grace an Elephant 6 release to date) that illuminates the striking pop melodies once buried below the group's fuzz-drenched surface. Although song titles like "High Atop the Silver Branches" and "Simon (The Bird with the Candy Bar Head)" serve notice that the Elves' psychedelic tendencies are still in full bloom, there's a new emotional complexity behind the songs as well — Andrew Rieger's high, plaintive vocals lend a strange poignancy to his surreal narratives, and tracks like the lovely "Jane" possess genuine sweetness and warmth. A major addition to the E6 canon, A Dream in Sound pushes Elf Power to the label's front lines alongside Olivia Tremor Control and Neutral Milk Hotel — lofty company indeed.

Customer Reviews

Great CD

This album is awesome. For any Elephant 6 Collective fans. ps. The other guy that reviewed this cd is an idiot.

A Dream In Sound by Elf Power

If you like this, deffinately try thier album the Red King. Their music just has such a great amalgamation of what was good throughout the 60's 70's 80's and 90's. They sound psychadelic and spacey at times, and yet all songs are under 4 min. That is talent. Also, "shanehand" was reffering to "vollyball kid" as an idiot and not me. Just wanted to clear that up.

Elf Power Has the Power

Elf Power is great, and so is this album. Another E6 great.
