Hindi-Rock: Elephant Stone – “Where I’m Going”

Elephant Stone

“Where I’m Going”

Ship Of Fools

Elephant Stone is one of the most original sounding bands I have come across.  It must be the use of the sitar that drives the songs forward.  All I know, I really love this band.  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, spearheaded the Hindie-Rock movement, and are prominent members of the burgeoning psych rock scene. Dhir has recorded, performed, and toured with indie rock icons (Beck), legendary cult bands (The Brian Jonestown Massacre), and contemporary psych titans (The Black Angels and The Horrors).  I think the only way to describe Elephant Stone is calling it George Harrison/Ravi Shankar plays Silversun Pickups.  If they call close to you, see them.  They are worth it.  Guys, you gotta come to Pittsburgh.
