Pink Air, the eleventh album from the distinctive and idiosyncratic New York cult band Elysian Fields, is a post-apocalyptic rock & roll joyride, touching on themes as far-reaching as natural disasters and global warming (the menacing, carnal “Storm Cellar”), life under a narcissist would-be dictator (“Philistine Jackknife”), the loss of human heritage (the dystopian sci-fi of “Karen 25”), vulnerable families falling through the social safety net (“Household Gods”), and meditations on time, friendship, loss, and mortality (“Time Capsule,” “Star Sheen”). Despite its mordant tone, the record never feels heavy handed, its mood lightened with infectious hooks and doses of humor and satire.
