Elephants Never Forget
The musicians who make up the Elephant 6 collective have formed and reformed in several different permutations over the past ten years. With its roots in Athens, Georgia, Elephant 6 artists have included current bands the Apples in Stereo and the Essex Green, and the now-defunct Beulah and Neutral Milk Hotel. While some of the acts have disbanded and rearranged, it looks like the Olivia Tremor Control is reuniting at least for the present. OTC is planning a brief transcontinental jaunt that kicks off in their southern hometown on April 15th. The band’s most recent album, Black Foliage: Animation Music, was released in 1999. OTC has no plans to record in the future, but they will reissue some older material on Cloud Recordings later this year.
