Oliver Elf Army - Telescope

When trying to decide on whether or not to introduce yourself to your new city or state's musice scene, I suggest looking up some of the bands playing at your local basement shows, water holes and music friendly venues.
That's how I did it when I first moved to New Jersey.And though it may have taken some time. It turned out to be a very rewarding search.
Therefore, I'm going to try to take a similar path in my move to the West Coast (and to be more specific, Seattle, WA.

As I found myself being accepted to a facebook group that focuses on Seattle's independent music scene. I was introduced to Everett Washington's Oliver Elf Army.
O.E.A.'s third release, 2017's four song 'Telescope' follows their weird, fuzzed out sound perfectly.

Though Oliver's Elf Army clearly don't take things all that seriously. (and why should anyone, at this point.) The results of their collaboration and output is quite stellar.
And while I usually save acts of this kind for the circular file. This particular approach and style of music definitely has its place and purpose.
