It Was Hot, We Stayed In The Water (KLP116)
is Phil Elvrum
--songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, sonic alchemist--and a rotating collective of collaborators who channel his unique visions into sound. Orchestrated and thematic, Microphones
' music is an aural excursion. Knowing these traits won't prepare experimental pop enthusiasts for what's next and makes the new album It Was Hot, We Stayed in the Water
highly anticipated. A hazy explosion of layered sound. Foggy heights of introspective psychedelia. Earth's elements inspire tales of yearning and searching. Organ and drums, hushed harmonies, accordion, tape loops, ambient nature sounds, xylophone, feedback, fuzz, acoustic strummings. A kaleidoscopic levitation unto higher consciousness, touching base with the psychedelic style sound-and-melody themes that your mind's ear goes after.
