Montreal psych rockers Elephant Stone will release their third full-length album, Three Poisons, on August 26th via Hidden Pony Records. They’ previewed their self-described “creative pinnacle” with the eerily calm title track, and now, they leap from ’60s psychedelics into ’80s New Wave/R&B with “Knock You From Yr Mountain”.
More straightforward than the trio’s past fare, the track takes a bedrock of funky bass and wishy-washy synths and layers on top sultry, come-hither vocals and some extra groovy sitar. Still, with little bits of scorching guitars and dashes of atmospherics throughout, there’s a certain trippiness to it all. The end result is not unlike dropping a little acid and then attending one of Prince’s awesome pajama parties.
