I'd never heard of these guys before a friend turned me on to them. This is a classic CD I play again and again.

A Real Gem

Wig

Idie rock with a shot of folk. 'High Atop the Silver Branches' is the highlight, blending a swooping bass, tight snares and a tinny synthesizer to create a rich pop gem. 'Jane' and 'O What a Beautiful Dream' are excellent ballads, while 'We Dream in Sound' provides a driving beat to remind the listener that this is still, after all, a rock album.

Who Are…Light Heat

By Matthew Fritch, Contributor

Quentin Stoltzfus shot through the ranks of a late '90s Philadelphia psych-rock scene — a tightly-knit faction of retro-futurists that included the Lilys, Bardo Pond, Lenola, Photon Band, Azusa Plane and Asteroid #4 — on the back of a near-perfect dream-pop debut album.

They Say All Music Guide

The aptly titled A Dream in Sound is Elf Power’s creative breakthrough — inventively produced by the great Dave Fridmann, the record is a great leap forward from the previous When the Red King Comes, boasting a bright, majestic sheen (the richest to grace an Elephant 6 release to date) that illuminates the striking pop melodies once buried below the group’s fuzz-drenched surface. Although song titles like “High Atop the Silver Branches” and “Simon (The Bird with the Candy Bar Head)” serve notice that the Elves’ psychedelic tendencies are still in full bloom, there’s a new emotional complexity behind the songs as well — Andrew Rieger’s high, plaintive vocals lend a strange poignancy to his surreal narratives, and tracks like the lovely “Jane” possess genuine sweetness and warmth. A major addition to the E6 canon, A Dream in Sound pushes Elf Power to the label’s front lines alongside Olivia Tremor Control and Neutral Milk Hotel — lofty company indeed. – Jason Ankeny
