This two-track single introduced the music of Jerry "Mandrake" Zepeda's project, Mandrake's Love Apple. "Elephant Memory" is a scorching raga rock. Zepeda plays his sitar like a rock star (i.e., with attitude). The solid psychedelic groove provided by Steve Pool (drums) and Aaron Earhart (guitar) is a stellar vehicle. "13 Tears of the Purple Cobra" presents the other side of the musician, closer to his training with sitar master Rahul Sakyaputra. A gentle improvisation, it takes the form of a duet with Vine Sweetland on tambura and tabla. Typically psychedelic, the music is filtered through flanger and echo effects. An excellent first taste; all listeners need now is the main course. Elephant Memory is distributed through
