Album Details

As of the Spring of 2010, Blake Sennett, had quit music. Abandoned it completely. No more Rilo Kiley, no more The Elected. The former guitarist and songwriter focused his efforts elsewhere, writing and directing a short film, moving out of his house of 12 years and taking in a rescue dog. Music was a thing of the past, an afterthought.

So why is there a new record by The Elected, titled Bury Me in My Rings. Did Blake struggle in his new endeavors, find failure in the harsh realm of the film industry? Is he making his return to the world of music defeated, tail between his legs, scratching at the back door of his past successes? The answer, one simply finds, is no. It was simply the interest of friend and colleague Jason Cupp that culled Blake from the depths and had him writing again. Jason, the man that mixed The Elected's previous effort, Sun, Sun, Sun, suggested an impromptu recording session. Blake had no material, no songs to explore, but Cupp insisted. Pressure free, no expectations.

The results stand as a singular vision, in what is The Elected's strongest work to date. For longtime listeners, there are new sounds to enjoy, such as the mid '70s Bowie bounce of "Go For The Throat," or the calculated "Miss You" era Stones cum Early Talking Heads groove of "Babyface." Signature tones remain, and can be found on the island sunset serenade "Trip Round the World," with the melodic slide of the lap steel, the comforting pluck of a ukulele, offering new ears a sense of what's come before.
