Elk City has a fascinating neo-psychedelic video for “Strong (You’re Not Alone).” Apparently, the band is quite obsessed with cult documentaries. Since I also watch more than my share of shows about cults, the video has been named the Flawless Friday Video for the week.
My friend lived on a commune when they were a kid. One of the first things that I heard their dad say was “Jim Jones sold monkies door to door.” It sounded crazy but it was not a lie.
If you and your friends like to talk about or watch cult documentaries, you should put this album on the playlist for when you get together. The band should have a documentary watching party and/or show with The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Let’s hope that they can make it happen.
For anyone that is a fan of Natalie Merchant, you will almost certainly love Elk City. Their full ‘Undertow’ album is already available for pre-order on Bandcamp.
Dance in circles
Wait a while, wait it’s born
Be in your time
Feel your way
Get it what you want-from your life
‘Cuz it’s a beautiful life
It’s your life
Take a turn
Dance until your whole
