about

Elk is the 1st of 2 newly released LP's recorded by American Studies.

We tried to capture the live energy and drive to be heard with an album that represented us: a loud band, never really content with settling down.

This album contains a mix of early and later material written by the San Francisco band including epic songs like Life in a Bunker, Oakland, Pots & Pans and Lights, which were never previously released.
