Delicate Steve, “Don’t Get Stuck (Proud Elephants)” MP3

September 28, 2011

Delicate Steve recorded "Don't Get Stuck (Proud Elephants)" in rented house in Warwick, NY, summer 2010. The idea was to create a recording environment like the one Red Hot Chili Peppers had during the Blood Sugar Sex Magik sessions, but the band says they, "ended up spending almost all of our time swimming in our lake or hiking the mountain on our 50 acres of property." You can hear all sorts of nature vibes in "Don't Get Stuck." There's water finding its way down mountains over mossy rocks in the percussion, and rope swings kicking out from oak trees in the rhythm, all swaying to a three part harmony mountain tune sung by a choir of pianos and clarinets. It's everything you could want from a summer escape, plus some sweet slide guitar. Download the version of the track that made it onto their Wondervision album below, and check out a video of them playing it in the Warwick house here. Delicate Steve will tour with Ra Ra Riot this fall, dates below.
