About this album

Cave are a dual drummer led modern psyche outfit from Chicago. They take single riffs and hammer them into a sort of kraut flecked hypnorock with all sorts of strange twists and turns, bizarre arrangements, baffling breakdowns resulting in unique & amazing jams.

‘Butthash’ explores a damaged and delirious path - like garage rock raised on Magma and Neu/Faust. The guitars crunchy and thick, occasionally opening up into wailing psychrock blowouts, the drums distorted but grooving. Like an amphetamine fueled Circle via the basement, the sound a sweat soaked instrumental groove.

Flip over for ‘Machines & Muscles’, a more lush & epic approach, like a neanderthal krautrock. Reminiscent of Peng-era Stereolab this builds & builds with awesome grinding space rock riffage via warbly synth & flurries of percussive splatter. Entrancing, a heaving, pulsing, throbbing mass, the sound magnetic and irresistible.

The additional multimedia CD features the two 7” tracks along with two other equally rocking tracks and an exclusive and amazing video for Butthash.

Limited edition package of numbered green vinyl 7” and CD. In full colour wraparound picture sleeve.

Sept 2008, TR011.
