In the mid-90s, a group of like-minded bands known as the Elephant 6 Collective began to establish their presence throughout the various indie rock scenes of the U.S. with their most fruitful activity growing in the fertile soils of Athens, Georgia. Elf Power, one of many bands operating out of the Classic City, would become one of the scene’s best. In Episode 13 of In Loving Recollection, Elf Power’s Andrew Rieger tells the story of the band’s 1999 record A Dream in Sound. Recounting the events that led to the album’s creation, Rieger speaks on their experience working with producer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev) and the valuable practice of dream journaling.
For the first episode of In Loving Recollection, Michael Holland of the North Carolina band Jennyanykind tells the story of their 1996 record Revelater. Speaking on the elements and events that inspired the album’s creation, Holland also touches the band’s experience working with noted producer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Spoon) and their short foray into the major label system.
