Phish have just released a new track called “Time Turns Elastic” (available exclusively on iTunes). The studio version clocks in at 13:30, so it’s seems possible that in concert it will last an entire weekend. The good news is that it sounds as if the recently reformed band had never gone away in the first place. The opening of the song feels quintessentially Phish-esque, both lyrically (“Seen all, seen all, seen all summer/Seen all, seen all, seen all spring/But I’m a submarine”) and musically, thanks to Trey Anastasio’s trademark riffs and Page McConnell’s fancy finger work on the keyboards. And then the song completely turns at 4:32, going from melancholy jam to an almost ‘80’s new wave sound. What do you think, Music Mixers? Are you digging the new groove? Or do you simply not have enough the time to listen to it?
