- The Distance Between by Great Lakes
7/10 Penrith Steve 10th November 2014
Great Lakes are from Atlanta, GA and whilst they are not part of the Elephant 6 collective their melodic indie-pop sound leans in that direction. Also, members of other Elephant 6 bands such as Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel and Elf Power have contributed to their recordings.
The album opens with a minute of atmospherics known as “Free Scene” which is followed by “Sister City” which has a similar psychedelic indie-pop sound to Apples in Stereo. There’s a 60s influence over this album “Now Is When” has a Zombies plinky-plonk sound and “Some Of Shelly’s Blues” is British invasion influenced. There is also a cover of The Zombies “This Will Be Our Year”.
It’s a decent, poppy album built on good musical influences. It may appeal to fans of Foxygen as well as other bands I have mentioned.
