Ship Of Fools
The day approaches that we been waiting for: the official release of Elephant Stone of Sept 19. What a great band. The combination of rock music and Indian sitar music is such a great mix. Formed in Montreal in 2009, Elephant Stone is the brainchild of vocalist, bassist, songwriter, and sitar player, Rishi Dhir. Also featuring Miles Dupire (drums/backing vox) and Gabriel Lambert (geetar/backing vox), Elephant Stone have toured extensively throughout North America and Europe and are prominent members of the burgeoning psych rock scene. I myself am so happy to see psych rock coming back into style, and Elephant Stone are a perfect example of that. Imagine The Dandy Warhols with a sitar or a harder Beatles in their Rubber Soul/Revolver era. They are going on tour this fall, with a stop in Pittsburgh. Let me tell you, I am going to be there, and I recommend you see this band if they come to your town.
