From Jacksonville's First Coast News:
With illusionary lyrics, all over the place, MCAHF create a clever, dusty and lovelorn world where funny things happen. Just listen to "Alphabet Soup," for a brilliant example of how sharp these guys are with their
wordplay. And that's just the start, We Have An Elephant is loaded with songs that paint pictures with words and create emotional moments with its musical accompaniment. They might be from Florida but
their hearts and minds are in a different time and place.
Michael Claytor and His Friends are a special band and their album We Have An Elephant is a special debut. It's an album with a down home feel and the kind of
record you want to bring home to your mother. It's a friendly affair that's written and played brilliantly and has to be one of the best records to come out of Gainesville in a very long time.
