EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Elk City - Ceramic Men
When listening to Elk City's "Cherries In the Snow," I visually imagined a cake my grandma used to make. It was a cheap delicacy- angel food cake with Cool Whip and cherries puddled on top. Like 'cherries in the snow.' With Renae LoBue delicately cooing over flashing cymbals and 1950s-rock-n-roll-esque riffs, Elk City's version is as frothy and sassy as the cake after which it's named. With that in mind, we bring you an exclusive of from the band (whose members used to be in The Melting Hopefuls). Below is "Ceramic Men" has girls-gone-gargage-rock, DIYY feel - a mix between the early angry-and-ironic Liz Phair and Blondie from 1979 to 1981.
