Drunk Elk is responsible for one of my all time favourite songs, namely ‘Quintesence‘ from his 2010 record Pieces of People We Have Known (though my favourite version appeared on a long OOP Inverted Crux cassette). So it’s good news that the Tasmanian songwriter has a new album coming out later this month on Doctor Guten Tag Records, which is apparently operated by Dave Elk himself. The cassette, which is so far unnamed, will also get a limited run release through Wormwood Grasshopper.
Drunk Elk’s music sounds remote. There’s a superficial ‘outsider’ quality to it, but it’s more solitary than it is unusual per se. I know it’s contradicted by name of the song, but Drunk Elk’s music reminds me of remote, inhospitable plains at night. Cicadas and swarms of glowing rabbit eyes.
