Athens indie rock legends Elf Power are releasing their first new album in five years. The Elephant Six band has been kicking around for twenty eight years at this point, which is long enough that you'd expect them to slow down and start to release mediocre music, but if "Undigested Parts" is any indication, their upcoming album is going to be pretty great. "Undigested Parts" may not be as groundbreaking as A Dream in Sound sounded when I was in college, but that's only because music has caught up with Elf Power. This is a great indie rock song with some serious oddball pop hooks. It has just enough of that indie psychedelic sound so that you'll instantly know it's Elf Power.
