Vic Chesnutt, Elf Power Collaborate

 

Two Athens
based titans to hit the road in November.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

On October 28th, Orange
Twin will release Vic Chesnutt’s
collaboration with Elephant 6
psychsters Elf Power, entitled Dark
Developments
.  The album has already drawn comparisons to Lou Reed,
John Cale, late career Nick Lowe, and Raymond Carver.

 

Recorded over the course of a winter by Vic and Derek Almstead in Chesnutt’s
own attic studio, a label press release says that “Dark Developments revels in the intimate, home-recorded atmosphere you’d expect from an Athenian
union like this.”   Elf Josh Lott makes his final appearance
on the album.  It has been called a
“friction extant between Chesnutt’s
shadowy worldview and the inventive bounce and bray of Elf Power’s euphonious intra-band chemistry”  

 

Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power finish up the weekend
playing shows in Spain. 
  Elf Power then will return stateside
for the Elephant 6 Holiday surprise tour before joining up with Vic again at
the end of October.
