*180 gr Purple vinyl* Bridging the gap between the band’s stoner-doom beginnings and their
proggier leanings of recent years, this two-track EP finally gets its own
dedicated European pressing via Stickman Records. When Elder’s second full-length
record Dead Roots Stirring came
out in 2011, it easily surpassed
their debut and made waves in
the stoner rock community. By
the time their follow-up Lore was
released four years later, the band
startled listeners expecting another
stoner epic: the band had incorporated
elements of progressive,
psychedelic, post- and psych-rock
into their widening musical pallet.
If it felt like a big step, that’s only
because many had failed to notice
the band’s transition showcased on
the 2012 EP Spires Burn/Release
- which has until now never seen
release outside the US.
Though only two songs long, as
per usual Elder fill out the grooves
with long-runners that travel a
ways from their starting points. “Spires Burn”, the A-side, follows
sludgy Maryland-doom style
riffage into classic twin guitar
interplay and psych-rock breakdowns.
“Release” is the perfect
counterpoint to the darker A-side,
with uplifting, melodic leads and
unexpected swerves. The first notions
of a more progressive song
structure and bolder songwriting
shine through on both songs,
which still remain heavy enough to
appeal to fans of the band’s earlier
work.
Spires Burn/Release is not just a
footnote but an excellent standalone
record in the band’s trajectory.
Available on 180 gram purple vinyl
including download card.
