Heres some kind words from Volcanic Tongue, about the Drunk Elk tape.

"Killer new limited cassette album from this form-defying Tasmanian avant garage trio: Drunk Elk marry the kind of crude psych/pop vision of New Zealand’s Scorched Earth Policy/Pin Group/This Kind Of Punishment with some supremely out melodic/rhythmic innovations that give the nod to The Shadow Ring, Kousokuya, Jim Shepard and The Shaggs. Oceanus... feels darker than the previous Under Neon Lights, working a similar magic to single chord solos and utterly wonked lead guitar as Mad Nanna but with a sense of apocalyptic urgency and fucked-up grandeur that is supremely dramatic. Think a folk-punk Jim Shepard drunk on the stars backed by a no-technique Josef K drilling two-note bass runs into the centre of your skull and you have the ultimate post-Velvets edge of the world navigation of the sound of lonesome nada. Stunning, still one of the best bands on the planet right now and very highly recommended."
