Elephant Bones

Boomerang (


Comparing Cleveland to New York won't fly in some circles, but the trio Elephant Bones channels the rambling nature of Ryan Adams and the darkness of a SoHo pub with accomplished ease. Produced by drummer Ryan Foltz, Boomerang is a tour de force of mid-'90s singer-songwriter college rock; think Steve Poltz backed by careening Posies. The voice of Eric Bee is the reason to stick this record out. Spinning his stories with a blind wit, he sings, "Let's go climb a tree," and it'll send you straight to the Metroparks.
