The Ivory Elephant - Stoneface (Black Vinyl LP)

Releases July 26, 2019 

Melbourne trio, The Ivory Elephant are releasing their second full-length LP Stoneface on July 26 via Berlin based label, Kozmik Artifactz (Child, Buried Feather, The Heavy Eyes, Ruby the Hatchet).

A follow up to the band's first LP Number 1 Pop Hit, the new album ventures  across the breadth of contemporary Psych. Track's like Maybe I'm Evil and Low Expectation continue the heavy fuzz sounds of the bands last release, while extended jams on Storm, Wars and Jazzhead pt II allow for stretched out psychedelic journeys. Meanwhile new layers are added with quasi-acoustic tracks such as Stoneface and Stoneface Jamboree.

Guitarist Trent Sterling muses that “on this album we really wanted to get deep in to Psych. The blues is still in there, but it's hidden behind a lot of fuzz and reverb. We also wanted to approach this release as a full album that is best listened to in one hit, rather than just a bunch of songs stuck together. There's some lengthy jams on there and some pretty heavy stuff, but there's also tracks on there like Jazzhead pt I and Stoneface which are pretty different to what people would expect from us.”

Recorded and mixed at Melbourne's iconic Soundpark Studios (Paul Kelly, Clairy Browne, Dave Graney) across 10 days, the album has a markedly more refined feel than the bands previous shoe-string-budget releases. This time the trio had a chance to really stretch out in the studio with the resulting sound featuring many layers including lots of guitars, sitar, mandolin, farfisa, hammond organ and some other random shit.

The LP will be available on CD and deluxe gatefold vinyl and features artwork by Brisbane based artist Henry Bennett. Summer launch show and tour dates to be announced soon.
