It’s been three years since Montreal’s Elephant Stone released an album — through frontman Rishi Dir was also busy with his psych led supergroup Mein — but are working on the follow-up to Ship of Fools as we speak. That won’t be out till 2020, but they do have a new single that finds the usually jangly band dipping a toe into heavy rock territory. “‘Land of Dead’ began with stoner-rock riff on the sitar; it was pretty quick to write,” Rishi tells us. “Lyrically, I knew it would be the dark centerpiece of a song suite. Working with my friend, and Mien bandmate, John Mark Lapham, we came up with the lyrics telling of a world devoid of empathy and burning skies. It’s tragic how life imitates art.” Crank it up: “Land of Dead” you can listen below.

The Cosmic Dead
“The Cosmic Dead are four psychedelic warlords from Glasgow with a penchant for trippy, long-form grooves that summon the spirit of Komische legends such as Neu! and Can and the Space-Prog oscillations of Hawkwind, amongst other trance-inducing influences.” – Phantom Channel

Triptides
Psychedelic four-piece from Los Angeles, California. Their music can be visual, a fuzz-warped haze suddenly giving way to a dream sequence soundtrack. Listeners may experience a melting sensation and positive vibrations.

Baba Naga
Baba Naga are shamen in a world where the existence of souls is denied. They offer worship for those who acknowledge the nihility of deities. Baba Naga offer stories in song, and give hopeless prayer to the people. The gods are dead, but the people need to worship something.
The music is a peregrination from desperation to despair, channelled into euphoric, psychedelic, pagan gloom.
The live show is moody, trippy, a sickening high without narcotics. Although the members of Baba Naga neither smoke the Devil’s herb, nor ingest psyychotropic drugs, their doomy, shoegazey gigs are often described as making people feel as if they are stoned.

Making “The Three Poisons” New: A Conversation with Rishi Dhir about Elephant Stone’s “ES3PRMX”

“For a remix record, people say, ‘Well, it’s not really new material.’ But it is in a way.”

So says Elephant Stone leader Rishi Dhir about his band’s latest project: ES3PRMX, an album of remixes of songs from the 2014 LP, The Three Poisons.

ES3PRMX, which comes out today (2nd June 2015, and is available for download here), isn’t the standard remix album. In fact, it’s far from it.

http://

Dhir has released a record that gives seven of today’s leading musicians a chance to, in essence, collaborate with him and his Elephant Stone band mates, Gabriel Lambert and Miles Dupire, on the creation of a new version of The Three Poisons. And this new version bears traces of the record that came out last year, but it’s really a brand new work that deconstructs and reassembles The Three Poisons in extremely creative and unpredictable ways.

ES3PRMX is its own beast.

Alex Maas from The Black Angels guest stars in , a song that oozes the remnant psychedelic vibes of Strawberry Alarm Clock, still haunting a ruined cathedral in the infamous Hashbury heights. The new album will come out in 2016, so this is just a small tease for what’s coming ahead.

Elephant Stone, who covered a nifty Tom Petty cover last year, are back with a new song, ‘The Devil’s Shelter’.
