The Elected – “Go For The Throat”

By Scott Lapatine / March 29, 2011 - 2:09 pm

It’s been five years since we’ve heard new music from the Elected, Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett’s indie pop side-project. Bury Me In My Rings, the Elected’s third LP, finds Sennett playing most of the instruments and handling production as well. It also marks the former Sub Pop act’s first album with Vagrant. Their sound these days is inspired by the breezy jams of the ’70s/’80s west coast music scene. The blueprint for “Babyface” specifically seems to be Lindsey Buckingham’s first solo album. Check that out, along with the premiere of “Go For The Throat,” after the jump.

Bury Me In My Rings is out 5/17 via Vagrant. Mark Grotjahn created the cover art displayed above.
