Description: Montreal's Elephant Stone is led by sitarist/bassist Rishi Dhir. As a highly sought out sitar player in the psychedelic rock scene, he has recorded and toured with the Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Horrors, the Soundtrack of Our Lives, and many more. Their new self titled LP is a follow up to their debut album, ''The Seven Seas,'' which long-listed for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize. The album finds Elephant Stone combining '60s pop with heavy psycehdelic raga, showcasing Dhir's ability to write concise pop songs as well as the band's ability to kick out sprawling jams. Artful lyrics and Rishi's considerable sitar talents make this a modern psych classic. The band has upcoming appearances at SXSW, Austin Psych Fest and a tour with The Black Angels.
