I'm back! Let's listen to Great Elk together

I spent the last few months finishing writing a dissertation, teaching a bunch of students about statistics, finally graduating from grad school, moving 1000 miles across the country, finding a job for the fall, adopting a sweet 4 year old American Staffordshire Terrier from a shelter, and woefully neglecting my music blogging. I've still been listening to a whole bunch of music during all of those things though, so I'm hoping to start posting some stuff here much more regularly now that life is starting to settle down a bit.

Today I wanted to share a song (or two) by the Brooklyn indie rock / indie folk quintet Great Elk. I first discovered the band on the Wild Honey Pie blog, and I've found myself wanting to keep replaying their album since then. The album closer, "A Clouded Head," is perhaps my favorite track from the band's new album "Star Stuff." A beautiful solo acoustic version of the song can be listened to / watched below.

Another album standout is "Music Is Better Than Life," which you can stream (and download) below.

The album is only $7.99 on Amazon and seems like a great soundtrack for summer evening drives.
