The Movements didn't take much time. It wasn't until the end of 2013 that "Like Elephants 1" was released, the first part of a pack of two, followed by "Like Elephants 2". Part one was a successful mixture of beat-, garage-, psych- and 60s sounds. Part two takes up exactly there. But the Swedes are doing it even better now. While "Like Elephants 1" still lacked a really outstanding song, there are now plenty of them. The Movements probably saved the best for the end. The opener "Six Feet Under" has such an enchanting melody and such a naive groove that you could jump for joy. "Stolen Love" is psychedelic, "Redemption" flirts with country thanks to its slide and steel guitars. In "Give It To Me" things can get rough. "Icecold" amazed by a splendid alienated piano. Anyway, the biodiversity is immense on "Like Elephants 2". Surprises everywhere and a handful of excellent songs turn the new album into a little pearl.
