Christmas Present - Elder Live on Valley Homegrown

Download MP3s from: [mf]
As you know, I don't usually post modern bands on here, and I am not about to start doing so regularly as this blog has a definite theme, but as it's Christmas i'm going to do something a little out of the norm. Boston, MA's Elder are one of my favourite current bands and they were kind enough to send me an exclusive video a while back of a TV performance they recorded live in 2010. So above is the video (the band starts at about the 02:50 mark) and here is the audio that I have ripped from it in 320k and made into a live EP: Elder MP3s

I think this recording really catches their psychedelic doom sound perfectly, the guitar/bass tones are gorgeous, the psychedelic interludes are mind-frying and the riffs are infectious.

02. Hexe
03. White Walls
04. The End
05. Dead Roots Stirring

Thanks to Elder (pages: facebook, bandcamp, LastFM) and thanks again to everyone who listens here!
Merry Christmas, Rich.

  1. thank you Rich this is freaking awesome!

    1. I concur! They are fantastic.

  2. Merry Christmas, Rich!

    You have no idea how much I appreciate this gift--just recently got into Elder and have been wanting to see more live footage to tide me over 'til their eventual arrival to the center States.

    1. Merry Xmas to you too. I'm not surprised, they are awesome! They are coming to Europe but not the UK next year so I hope to travel to see them. Hope your holiday season is good, and looking forward to your comp one day!

  3. These guys are great! It's always nice to hear young bands do something right for a change. There is a band out of Seattle called Ancient Warlocks that are really good. Also check out The Muggs from Detroit.
