Drunk Elk - s/t tape
Completely creeped-out, psychedelic lo-fo downer pop from Tasmania. I read a news report about the water down there being contaminated and I think the freaks behind Drunk Elk are the first casualty. Spooky, nostalgic dracula-esque synths and catchy basslines. This might be what Syd Barret would have listened to if he was in Thomas Hutter's place, riding the horse-drawn cart to Orlok's castle amongst bleak sepia pine forests and decaying castle remains.
