“Masters of War”

Elephant Stone – Masters of War

Founded by bassist and sitar performer Rishi Dhir, Elephant Stone is a magic-eye poster brought to life. The band is releasing a self-titled record on February 5 and then setting out on tour with The Black Angels, and now we’re getting a taste of another track from the album after NPR premiered “Heavy Moon” earlier this month.

“Masters of War” isn’t a Byrds cover (or a Dylan cover for that matter), though the band’s influence on the track is recognizable, with a simple structure caressed in dreamy guitar and just the right amount of fuzz and drone.
