Early love for The Storm Sessions:

“With this, they’ve proven that even without planning to, they have the ability to outpace many of their peers with a sheer force of will. We’re barely a month into the year, but this already feels like a defining moment for 2020 musically.” Raven Sings The Blues

“…The Storm Sessions is a wintry wonder—and another winner from the ever-expanding Elkhorn consciousness.” Aquarium Drunkard

“a cosmic, instrumental jam session…” NPR

“Strong new jams from the New York duo of Jesse Sheppard/Drew Gardner, extrapolating psychedelia out of twin guitar folk improvisation.” MOJO

“Rarely has a blizzard sounded this good.” PopMatters

“Jesse Sheppard (12-string acoustic) and Drew Gardner (6-string electric) launched Elkhorn in 2013 and have steadily built a national following for their ethereal yet dynamic sonic explorations.” Relix

“Wondering where instrumental guitar music is going in the 21st Century, then pick up a copy of Elkhorn’s The Storm Sessions today to find out.” Americana Highways

“…the band’s carved out a corner of the psych world whose audience seems up for a very specific strain of improvisation.” Downbeat

“As with Live/Dead, Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert or Ornette Coleman’s Free Jazz, this is an improv record that will be looked upon and studied by students of the freaky and the free for many years to come.” Record Crates United
