Quicker than thee stench of expensive bourbon oozing out of Washington today, Elf Power releases their new record on Orange Twin / Darla. The band visited GF studio during the Summer of 2012 to track for the album, listen to the title track “Sunlight On The Moon” via soundcloud below :
and stream the entire record (for a few more days) via NPR
“[Elf Power] recorded the latest record in a variety of settings ranging from singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger’s home studio, to Athens, GA’s The Glow studio, to Lavonia, GA’s Gypsy Farm Studios, a long derelict country music theatre located in rural Georgia. Newly renovated and transformed into a recording studio, the beautiful auditorium hosted concerts from the likes of Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and George Jones throughout the 1970s and 1980s.”

There’s high tale of gypsy business this Thursday night, featuring one of the classic city’s most recent incarnations in Rock and RAW, The Free Associates. This vicious group of scoundrels first appeared on our radar earlier this year when they booked a session at GF studio and proceeded to lay down an assortment of scorching singles. Currently, our sound engineers are sifting through the tapes, composing their debut release, and boy is it gonna be a BLOW OWT. But don’t take our word for it! The following is a blog post taken from thee HMB feed this morning :
The first Athens GA band I’d like to bring to the table for splendid observation is a vicious 3 piece Rock/Blues group relatively recent to the scene but not at all to the craft/livelihood of Rock N Roll . They are The Free Associates. Good God,man! If you have vicariously made your way around the nightlife of town in hopes for a good show (or hopes of your own personal means, for that matter), there is a good chance these guys were the reason you didn’t wake up until 3pm! We’ve all been there. Bouncing around trying to find a good show only to find pretentious hipsters with their iPuds, Punk bands that care more about how overtly dirty they look rather than what they’re playing, ’desperate to be’ reincarnations of Brantley Gilbert, overbearing Indie kid turned Math Metal wizards(thank God for effect pedals), and lets not forget the fedora sporting Folk masters. But have no fear! The Associates are here! The best thing about [them] is they’re an actual band! Not tied down to digital equipment and no theatrics to boot! Not to say that all bands/music in town isn’t genuine, there is something to admire and learn with these guys playing who they are and doing it very stripped down without reliance on their gear. Just how Rock and Roll began…READ FULL ARTICLE
Listen to the FA EARLY DEMOS (via soundcloud)
