Noisemakers: Elephant Stone performs “Motherless Child” on sitar

Aug 20, 2014
Noisemakers captures performances by our favourite emerging artists, off-stage and up-close.

Elephant Stone are on the verge of releasing their new album The Three Poisons, and we knew we wanted to go somewhere special to record a live performance from the Montreal psych-pop standouts. Our brainstorming sessions didn't produce what we wanted, so we packed our camera/audio gear and a sitar, walked into our wardrobe, and this is where we landed.

We don't know exactly where it was and we still don't know how we got back home, but that doesn't matter. What matters is this incredible stripped-down version of "Motherless Child (Love's Not For War)" performed by Rishi Dhir, Elephant Stone's resident sitarist to the stars (BeckThe Black Angels and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, to name a few).

Having found ourselves in this new world, we went exploring and had a run-in with Garfield who seemed to be silently protesting for chemtrail justice. He couldn't be reached for comment, so we have no further words on the matter.

Elephant Stone's The Three Poisons will be released August 25th via Hidden Pony Records. Pre-order it here.
