On their sophomore release, EiM finds themselves stepping further into the valley of rock n' roll and Americana, while continuing to indulge in their love of bass-heavy reggae music with hip-hop and punk-esque execution.
“'Live from the Stairwell’ is an incredible collection of rock and roll sounds that still maintain the reggae and dub undertones that have become a trademark to the Elephants in Mud sound. Featuring 7 brand new recordings of music, ‘Stairwell’ is E.i.M.’s most ambitious release to date. While it might be shorter than most full-length releases, it packs more energy and punch of sound than the majority of full-length albums I have ever heard. Even with the diverse nature of the songs, ranging from muted rock sounds of “Stairwell” to the mellow vibes of “Thyme Leaves” to the rock power anthem of “Basement,” ‘Live from the Stairwell’ is one of the most concise and entertaining digital releases of 2011.” -stereopirate.com
