“[Ship of Fools]… furthers the band’s groovy, danceable psychedelic mission.” – BrooklynVegan
“Elephant Stone are the crown jewels of Montreal psych rock.” – Exclaim!
Montreal psych-rock trio Elephant Stone have announced new remix album, featuring members of Young Galaxy, TOY, Caribou, Tahiti 80 and more. The album follows the release of the band’s recent full length
Ship of Fools – out now on Elephants On Parade/Burger Records. The renditions found on ‘Remix of Fools’ intensify the moments of infectious rhythm, highlight the swirling atmospherics, amplify the hidden hooks, and take the songs into unexpected and uncharted territory.
Speaking about Young Galaxy’s remix frontman Rishi Dhir says:
“Stephen Ramsay (Young Galaxy) and I have known each other for years. We initially met when I was recording the first Elephant Stone album “The Seven Seas” in 2008 at Breakglass Studios with Jace Lasek. Jace had recorded Young Galaxy’s debut and Stephen would stop by the studio. Fast forward 5 years later and I would run into Stephen while playing with our kids in the local park. We’d always end up talking about music and gear. I appreciated Young Galaxy’s shift into more electronic territory and mentioned in passing my bubbling obsession with Acid House and how I’d always wanted to create an Acid House-meets-raga album… So, when we finally released Ship of Fools, he was the first person I contacted for a remix. From our conversations, I knew he understood what I wanted this remix to be… and he nailed it. Funny enough, this track was the springboard for our collaboration on the future “Elephant Stone presents Acid House Ragas”….”
Formed in 2009 by Dhir (singer/bassist/songwriter/sitar) accompanied by Miles Dupire (drummer/backing vox) and Gabriel Lambert (guitar/backing vox), the band has proven to be innovators who are unafraid of challenging themselves and their audience. Elephant Stone have toured alongside prominent acts such as Beck, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and The Horrors. They continue to solidify their place in the burgeoning psych rock scene with an impressive sequence of releases. Most recently,
Ship of Fools presented a new Elephant Stone emphasizing catchy grooves and vocal melodies that smack of both infectious pop and dance, and the new remix EP takes five songs off of that release and illuminates them into even more trippy, ecstatic and dancefloor-ready light.
