Elysian Fields


Making use of their self-titled debut EP, Elysian Fields offered sort of noir rock and roll, the sedate chanteuse vocals of Jennifer Charles quickly conjuring ballpark comparisons to Margot Timmons (Cowboy Junkies) and Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star). The music is normally neither as mainstream as Cowboy Junkies nor as doom-obsessed as Mazzy Superstar, with cameos by observed NY downtown music mavens John Lurie and Marc Ribot. The band’s sophomore record Bleed Your Cedar was made by Steve Albini, but during this time period the band’s innovative throws started its unpredictable manner. The label criticized them for sounding as well dark and severe, forcing Elysian Areas to sever ties with Radioactive in 2000. Charles and Oren Bloedow agreed upon with Jet Established (written by Caroline) to concern Queen from the Meadow afterwards that year.
