about

Since the Major Label debut of 2010's "Songs About Girls", Elijah Should had been planning, recording, re-writing and deconstructing the songs that were intended to create "Elijah Should at the End of the World"

During the Full Moon of January 7th-8th 2012, "Bully Stick" was created as a nod to his former workplace "A World of Pets" in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. "Bully Stick" was the last piece to the puzzle needed to finally round off the record.

A notable departure from "Songs About Girls", Elijah Should's at the End of the World not only features more guitars, it also includes six songs that clock in at 6-minutes or more, the most notable being "the End (of the World)" which is over 20 minutes long! Yes, the subject matter is heavy and dark but that is not to say Elijah's optimism and humor can't shine through.

Also gone is the linear narrative of it's predecessor and, well, a lot of vocals and lyrics are gone as well. About half of the record contains seemingly inspired instrumentals with just a distorted word or two thrown in here or there.

I've toured with Elijah Should, and he IS most definitely a nut, but that motherfucker sure makes some innovative music.
