Elk & Shape Up Records



Elk is one of those producers that only comes around every so often. He has the ability to meld so many different style within one track it's alarming only one producer is the brain child of such music. There are notes of avant-pop, tropicalia, shoe gaze and beyond-and that's only what I pick up from a first listen.

His first offering was a four-track EP, 'Honey Range' released on Elk's own label, Shape Up Records back in 2009. You can pick up the entire EP @ 320 kbps via his BandCamp page here.

Feb. 15, 2011 will see the release of his first full length, 'Let's Get Married'-also to be released on Elk's label.

Check out a track from the upcoming release below.

Elk 'Volleyball' (Direct Link)

The album will be released digitally and on cassette. A format return I still find quite funny except that most of my peers who grew up listening to cassette probably drive older cars that have decks in them.

The album will find vinyl release eventually as well. The format I most likely will pick up.
