Took me back a bit to when we used to enjoy these musicals. I suppose they are a bi dated now.

Excellent quality sound as others suggested. Comes over loud and clear, nothing to spoil the enjoyment. Nice CD to play when the mood arises.

The Movements // Like Elephants 1 & 2 1 April 2014
By K. McFadin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
There was some waffling at the head office about whether to review a record that I’m involved with, and to be blunt, that I’ll be shilling for. There was an initial misinformed smell of disingenuousness on some level and the fear of the shilling going shrill, like it almost always does. Considering the timeline around here and how The Movements‘ Like Elephants 1 was a knock-out record before this happened, it would seem far more disingenuous to act like nothing is going on. At the root of more than one aspect, that’s not very genuine behavior for a genuinely wonderful album. There’s plenty of other diversionary tactics, ‘strategies’ I think the Yes Men call them, we could take. We (and it is we now) could employ a ‘guest reviewer.’ And then do what? Have them write a nice tome about what a piece of s*** this record is and then post it? We might just do that, but that’s another topic, another strategy we’ll bank roll for later. Surely a glowing write-up would be even more transparent, and a display of a lack of confidence on our part about where we come from. There’s not a thing wrong with that, but a hired gun is a hired gun; everybody knows that. Or, the spigot could be opened all the way and we could craft a long diatribe continuing this line of thought, feasibly ad infinitum, and never really say anything about the record. Which is why we’re here in the first place. In more ways than one. So, now that we addressed that elephant in the room, let’s talk about the elephant we all came here for … Like Elephants 2, a genuinely great record. Honestly.

If Like Elephants 1 was a rousing party in some respects, then LE2 is the mildly hungover, introspective morning after in its own respects. Is it a downer? Hell no. It’s the alter-ego to LE1 in the best of ways. Does it complete the cycle started on LE1? Absolutely. In that regard, it’s a flat-out success. The Movements, in their own transparency, made it clear these two albums were to stand on their own and to work as whole. The sweep begun on LE1 seamlessly crosses over to LE2, carrying over all the ingredients that made that album such a wonderful psych rock/pop statement. The ’60s and ’70s touchstones are all in place: the songwriting, the production, the underlying sentiments from the personal to the universal. They all point to where part of the soul of this record comes from. Considering that The Movements have gone through garage-tinged rock and space rock, and already have the psych grandeur of LE1 in hand, LE2 is a declaration of where they are right now. Possibly more than anything, that makes LE2 incredibly timely, and timeless. Personally and universally. For all the dynamics and bounce of LE1, there was never any attempt at hiding an underlying melancholy and sensitivity in many of the spaces between. It worked then, so to have them stop now would seem disingenuous … Sorry, we promised not to go there … This time out, it’s not necessarily given the spotlight while the exuberance gets the shaft. Rather, the ratio is inverted just enough to actually give both albums even more color when put side by side, and more importantly, taken as a whole. That formula is made evident out of the gate with the Six Feet Under (“ … down in the basement digging a hole … “), Stolen Love and especially the sparse Icecold. Icecold isn’t only emotionally open for the narrator, but also for the band in a structural way. It exposes the bare framework of song that exists under all the cuts, from the more pensive to the punchiest. It’s worth pointing out that since LE2 feels even more inward-looking that doesn’t mean it’s mundanely mature. It’s just in the after-party it seems aware the bloom is over, and you might not have dues to pay you can’t afford, but the free-ride isn’t going to last forever without some work. The few tire tracks on the face of it make it wiser, a little worn … and that makes it not only interesting, but more satisfying. Don’t let the title fool you (too much): the heft of Give It To Me reveals sympathy, not self-absorption. Everybody Needs Something takes that all one glorious windswept step further. An inarguable slab of perfect just-melancholy-enough psych pop that revels in the sweet twinge of wiggling a toothache of the heart and the conflicted rush that brings. Put David’s Song from LE1 next to it and the relationship between the two albums is inescapable. This is where LE1 and 2 join in perfect unison, where the flow from one to the other turns in on itself and the bond between these albums makes perfect sense. When the first single from LE1, The Death of John Hall D.Y., saw the light of day it’s no surprise Everybody Needs Something was with it. Something else everybody needs is Redemption–in some form–whether they admit it or not, or even want it. Turn LE2 over and it’s there, showing a real sensitivity to sequencing the record as well as the problems of the storyteller. Since the ‘non-believers’ today are as shrill, petty, vengeful and as ferociously myopic as those they take issue with, the rural spiritualness of Redemption swaddled in a pop blanket is downright refreshing, and heartfelt. No matter which side of the fence you drive your nails on. Now, it’s the time to testify and Yesterday, Now And Forever is the place to do it. An infectious, hopped up swirl-ride, this is The Movements firing on all pistons, and really bringing all the energy they poured into their other records right up to the here and now. It’s also the peak flurry of activity before the protracted multi-song ride out. The mysteriously brief title cut stands in contrast to the Love-ish counterpart on LE1, more fleshed out in spirit and wear like the whole album, dovetailing into the whole cycle. In a vague, threadbare way, it implies what happened between LE1 and LE2, and that it was just as interesting as what got put down on tape. Musically, and thematically, The Movements could have easily and effectively ended the album with Winter’s Calling for obvious reasons in the title alone, and many more once given a spin. It’s a lengthy, subtle roll finding as much drama–and dramatics–as the more fervent cuts. Winter’s Calling flows right into What Would Happen If I Tried?, a coda of sorts that offers up a summation of not just LE2, but the overarching picture started on LE1.

“What would happen if I tried? … “

The Movements did. And succeeded twice. Honestly.

Like Elephants 1 & 2 will be releases together on vinyl in the US from Sunrise Ocean Bender Records // sunriseoceanbender.com
