PUSH/PULL by ELSINORE, released 01 October 2013 1. The Art of Pulling 2. Fatal Flaw 3. The Thermostat, The Telephone 4. Sinister Sister 5. New England 6. Ultraviolence 7. Life Inside an Elephant 8. Evens 9. Residential Weather 10. Mislocation The four original members of Elsinore, three of whom were music majors at a small state school, met in downstate Illinois. After minor Midwest touring the band recorded their first full-length, Nothing For Design (2005). Not long after, Elsinore abandoned their rootsy Americana sound, cased their acoustics, and went electric.
As a final product, Push/Pull still sounds distinctly like Elsinore, which is to say it’s a bit dualistic in tone. A handful of the tracks display the bouncy (although not so psychedelic) energy that has kept the group hovering on the periphery of national indie-rock consciousness, with trademark spacey keys and power guitar in full effect. It also contains the first of the album’s persistent bits of cardiac imagery, which reappear on nearly every track in a mirror image of the anatomically correct album art. The heart references are surprisingly literal at times, as in The Thermostat, The Telephone, where it is described (accurately) as a pumping machine in your chest.
