How could former locals Cheers Elephant possibly follow up Like Wind Blows Fire, the band’s masterpiece third album? Well, this is a good start. Baeble Music chose Cheers Elephant to be the next band featured on the website’s somewhat morbidly named “Dead Kitten Series,” in which they performed three new songs entitled “Airliner,” “Summer Surf” and “Steak Knife.” There are some cool interview snippets of singer/guitarist Derek Krzywick and drummer Robert King describing new album’s sound, how the band got its name and the painting an elephant once made for Robert. Check out the new music, as well as the elephant painting, here.
