Elf Power formed in 1994 and over the last 19 years have released twelve albums, two eps, and a handful of singles, while touring North America, Europe, and Japan many times. Albums such as 1998's Dave Fridmann-produced "A Dream In Sound" and 2008's collaboration with the late Vic Chesnutt, "Dark Developments" have cemented the bands' reputation as the finest purveyors of modern melodic pychedelic folk rock around.
Their latest album, "Sunlight On The Moon" combines the scuzzy, sleazy recording qualities of their early lo-fi masterworks with their powerful live bombast, with experiments in Kraftwerk-styled/Eno-esque drum machine minimalism, into a seamless, perfectly flowing whole. The album's release on October 1, 2013 coincides with American tour dates with the recently revived Neutral Milk Hotel, with whom Elf Power did their first big national tour 15 years ago in 1998! Many more headlining shows throughout America and Europe are planned for the fall and spring. Singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger and longtime collaborator multi-instrumentalist Laura Carter are joined by James Huggins(Of Montreal/Great Lakes) on bass, and Peter Alvanos on drums, though all the members play a wide variety of instruments on the recordings. Longtime collaborator Bryan Poole(Of Montreal) still joins the band on guitar at live shows.
The Electric Sons - The band formed in 2011 when Miller left his job as an illustrator for the FX Network series, “Archer,” to team up with Richards, an advertising graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design. Miller and Richards quickly gained a following of local fans after releasing a home-recorded EP under the name “AM83”. Energized by the grass roots success of the EP, the duo set their sights on releasing a follow-up EP. It was during those writing sessions that Miller and Richard’s shared love for electronic music began to influence their writing. The result is their latest self-produced, self-titled EP, The Electric Sons.
Noot d’ Noot are on a mission with absolutely no luggage. Their sound is as diverse as the list of artists they’ve worked with, be it studio collaborations with Dungeon Family’s Sleepy Brown, synthesizer flourishes lent to Mastodon’s “Crack The Skye” LP, or touring with Of Montreal. Early 2007, the original duo of Mathis Hunter and Dream Sanitation released the “Goofer Dust Mixtape,” collaborating with some of Atlanta’s finest players and studio rats while managing to blend everythang from abstract and southern hip-hop, psyche and shoe-gaze, afro-beat, rare-groove, latin jazz, and pretty much anything else imaginable into a seamless sound that could only have only been created in the present day cultural melting pot of Atlanta, Georgia.
Over the next few years, folks watched as the collective became a band; and quite possibly The South’s finest party band (Creative Loafing’s 2010 Best Band To Rock The Casbah is a testament to this notion). A series of bad record deals slowed the band only slightly, and they’ve managed to keep their heads above water releasing their own LP’s like 2009’s “Cash For Gold” and 2010’s “From Ever Since,” the latter of which houses a majority of the material that makes up the Noot d’ Noot live experience.
