[mp3] Great Elk – “I’m Going to Bend”

I couldn’t be more excited to share a brand new song from Great Elk’s next level new record, Autogeography.  The Brooklyn indie-folk band have stepped up their game considerably after a pair of excellent early EPs – the cleverly titled new one boasts cleaner production and, on a few tracks, power chords and huge, anthemic choruses that are more in line with vintage indie rock than the band’s Americana roots (“The Weight of the Sea” is one such banger and a must-hear).  Lead single “I’m Going to Bend” is just achingly pretty and worthy of whatever Wilco comparisons you want to throw at it (I’m hearing some “Jesus Etc.” in there).  The record release party is next week (Wednesday, 5/23) at Mercury Lounge.  I think you oughtta hear this record ASAP.

    Thanks for sharing this. “I’m Going to Bend” has a strong Archer Prewitt vibe to it (circa Wilderness), and I mean that as a compliment. Checking out the album previews at Amazon right now.
