See the Elephants this Saturday at the Comet

My day got filled with a few magic sunbeams when Trevor Elephant emailed with some good news -- the band will release a 7" single this June or July with a couple brand new songs, and a full-length later this summer.

Oh my... did the Pacific Northwest finally beat Denmark at something?

I just spied that Drowned in Sound posted a blog entry titled "The Elephants - The Elephants" in our indieRSS - and because I've been more than slightly infatuated with Tacoma's The Elephants for sometime -- I had to click through.

The Elephants are back!!!!

Tacoma band The Elephants' debut self-titled release was one of my absolute favorite records of 2005. The three-piece were known locally for their wistful blend of psychedelic pop-songs as well as their sloppily brilliant stage shows; I saw them nearly every opportunity I could, and the record is still in high rotation here at imaginary headquarters.

The Elephants!!!

Then, sadly, conflict broke the band apart. I don't know the personal details, but I know Elephant Jason Freet left the band (and has gone on to another fine Tacoma band, The Drug Purse). By 2006, it seemed the Elephants were no more.

But good news!!!! I just got an email from Trevor Elephant, who said that he and Cody Elephant have reformed the Elephants and will be, "playing out all wild summer long!" He also let me know that they've posted a new track to their MySpace page, a tender love ballad by Cody called "Mona" that Trevor posted: "He told me not to, BUT IT'S SO DELICIOUSLY GOOD!." writes Trevor.

Go have a listen, and make sure you also play "Oh Tina," still one of my favorite songs, ever.
