Heavyweight vinyl reissue of the self titled tape released originally on Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records.

The album has been remastered for vinyl by Phil Petrocelli for Debacle Records.

Recorded after the The Black River (Debacle Records) but released as their debut artifact, the album serves as a midpoint between the songforms of The Black River and the wild explorations of the recent Lionfish tape on Eiderdown Records.

Here is what BBIB wrote about it way back in 2016.

"Elkhorn is a folk/psych-rock guitar duo featuring Jesse Sheppard on twelve-string acoustic and Drew Gardner on electric. This music interweaves the extended folk tradition with psychedelic improvisation.

Elkhorn’s sound is rooted in the earthy, traditional fingerpicking of Sheppard with Gardner’s restrained, passionate cascades of improvised melodic phrases flowing through. They move freely between several different traditions; from American Primitive to Psychedelic Rock, from Hindustani to Mauritanian, from Krautrock to Jazz; pulling from players as diverse as Robbie Basho, Sonny Sharrock, Ben Chasny, and David Gilmour. Elkhorn combines the past and future in a rich multilayered music that shifts fluidly from pre-rock to post-rock, from the 1860s to the 1960s and beyond."
