“Atomonaut is a new psychedelic, space rock band from right here in Albuquerque. They join legendary local masters of the genre like SuperGiant and Of God and Science in propounding a heavy-duty, blues-inflected vision of space and time modulated by searing guitar riffs and Plutonic percussion. The band’s debut album, Space Vol. 1, invokes a bevy of bodacious spring-time blooms capable of inducing intense and intimate sonic inquiry about the stars about and beyond listeners. Case in point: “Tito 68” drones and rumbles through the atmosphere, rocketlike in it’s determination to rock, while follow-up “Stones” takes full advantage of blues-bound instrumental roots and storytelling. The hidden track at the end, “It’s All Been Done Before” joins earthy melodicism to the starry, sun-strewn heavens in a summary that is strikingly profound.” Sonic Reducer, Alibi Magazine March 29th, 2018.

Elephonic is excited to announce the release of the 3rd album we have recorded for Kyle Martin, “Broke Down” which will be officially released this Friday, Feb.16th. The album is a slight departure from Martin’s previous works, and is heavily driven by acoustic guitars, pianos, and Martin’s lush baritone voice. Hence the name “Broke Down”. The album was recorded by Jesse Korman at Elephonic Studios starting in the summer of 2017, and produced by Kyle Martin and Jesse Korman. Please join us for the Album Release Party next Friday, Feb 23rd at Blue Grasshopper.
