The release date of Elf Power‘s tenth album, Elf Power, may be a few months out, but hype is growing thanks to the release of the first single from the album. “Stranger In The Window” is just as soft and mysterious as anything off Back To The Web, and hints at their early Elephant 6 and Kindercore sensibilities.
It, of course, can be likened more to their recent works, the aforementioned Web and 2008’s In A Cave. With a shuffled percussion, a romantic slide guitar, and lyrical poetry as only Andrew Rieger can write. The album is dedicated to the memory of close friend of the band Vic Chesnutt, who passed late last year.
