The Movements, from Gothenburg, Sweden, have taken on space rock, garage rock and now open the flood gates to the world of psychedelic rock. Again. With Like Elephants 2, The Movements finish the grandeur they started with Like Elephants 1, working the two albums into a sweeping whole while also crafting them to stand as individual and exhilarating psych albums. The Movements put as much heart in the ‘parts’ as they do the bigger picture … The Movements fully exploit the dynamics of the psych rock and pop spectrum, painting the canvas with glorious panoramic kaleidoscopic colors. Now, both albums are together for full effect.
The Movements' ‘Like Elephants 1 & 2,’ available together for the first time. ‘Like Elephants 1 & 2,’ pressed on black vinyl, is beautifully packaged in high-quality sleeves inside of a reversible spot-varnished slip-cover. This pressing is a limited edition of 300 and includes a download card for both albums in format you desire. 20 tracks total.
“ … these two albums are undoubtedly meant to be heard as a pair. Together they roam through the best guitar music of the last few decades, blending their influences into something new, exciting, vibrant and just plain excellent.”—Terrascope
“ … Refreshingly, the Movements approach to psychedelia doesn’t rely on layering their original sound with phasing, extreme levels of reverb (which seems to be the instant psychedelia pre-set these days) and other studio trickery. Instead, they stretch themselves musically in a similar manner to a number of first generation psychedelicists … ”—The Active Listener
“Brilliantine guitars shimmer, whilst heavenly Hammond organ beautifully supports this masterclass in great songwriting. Great summery psychedelic garage pop. Very worthy of your attention.”—Optical Sounds Fanzine
“They move seamlessly from hard-driving motorik anthems to yearning existential ballads to dreamy psych dirges. As I listen I am reminded of everything from Steppenwolf and Black Sabbath to gentle Laurel Canyon country rock. When they want to go balls to the wall they have no trouble pulling out the stops and banging out the riffs, and are equally at ease pulling back and doing quieter and more thoughtful material. The musicianship is spot-on throughout.”—It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine
“ … ‘The Death of John Hall D.Y.’ which is one of a number of sun-dappled West Coast sounding tracks which, despite the subject matter, lifts the spirits in the sort of ways that The Byrds lift the spirits.”—Backseat Mafia
“ … never could have imagined that the music of The Movements would soon approach a place of true, unsurpassable resonance in our hearts, minds and ears, never could have imagined that the two albums would be joined in holy record-nerdery … ”—Revolt of the Apes
