Elephant Stone – Ship of Fools [2016]

For their fourth LP, Elephant Stone could have stuck to a recipe that’s worked well for founder and main songwriter Rishi Dhir. It’s one that lays breezy melodies over a pop blueprint, adding luscious psychedelic accompaniment that welcomes experimentation and often features

EZTV – High in Place [2016]

On Calling Out, EZTV seemed to have mastered timeless, effortless guitar pop. Their poignant melodies and tumbling riffs were so perfect that it was hard to believe they could be improved upon — and on High in Place, they’re a tough act to follow. Though the band didn’t make
