The Movements – Like Elephants 2

The Movements – Like Elephants 2
Crusher – 2014
Rock, Psych, Seventies, Garage
Rated: ****
Last fall they released the damn fine album entitled Like Elephants 1. And now the Göteburg five-piece psychedelic rock outfit The Movements return with the follow-up aptly named Like Elephants 2. As big, loud and colorful as the first piece; number two aims to complete the art and have the songs function as a pair of deviant bookends. They snatch the music that is flowing on the waves and through the surge of the great magnet and command, manipulate and manhandle it. It consumes the listener and provides you with a melancholy listening session that has you longing for the good ol’ days. The best thing is that they never go for the easy way or the quick kill; instead they continue on with their heavy psychedelic folk sound that excels in both grace and class. This goes way beyond the ‘retro’ moniker; this is doing it the old way, because it’s the only way to do it. Elegance personified. And let’s hope the vinyl release will be just as elegant!
