CAVE - Allways
Notify me when back in stock
Tremors rhythmically shaking your place-the
air's gone electric! You've seen this kind of
weather before... you weren't expecting it today. This is the beginning of Allways
CAVE are kind of beyond time, though. You
might feel like it's been awhile since you've
seen or heard them, but when you see or hear
them again, that moment will feel like Allways.
During the making of the last album,
Threace, CAVE was in the process of becoming a quintet. They toured the world afterwards,
playing on four continents and eighteen countries-as close to everywhere as they could
get. Then they took a minute. They recorded
it over time, in Chile and then Chicago. You
can hear all of this, the energy of liveness, the
reps, and consolidating expanded possibilities
within their new alignment, the time away, the
distance, and the freshness of returning to recorded sounds, everywhere on Allways
CAVE digs driving down into a pulse and
staying there for as much of FOREVER as they
can (though it's really only a single blissed glance into the infinite). In the past, much has
been made of CAVE's use of particular compelling tropes, but man, their inspiration comes
from everywhere - Miles, psych, beats, exotica,
library music, rock, punk, the Germans, the New
York guys too, minimalists, the Dead, music from
India, everywhere! This is a bunch of guys playing
rock-based music in a way that pushes them for
ward from everything they've experienced. When
we listen to the new CAVE, we're hearing guitars,
lots of 'em, bubbling under, scratching, fanning,
locking in and taking off, soaring on acid-washed
wings, with keys that pump, burr and whoosh in
and out of the rhythms. Fuck man, we're even
hearing vocals! We hear space, groove and rock,
flying together. This is CAVE, Allways.
Half-speed mastering of Allways at Abbey
Road has allowed the activity at all frequencies
to present with a liquid fullness and ripe detail.
Allways is a blueprint for your ears to read -and
a map for CAVE to follow through the world.
Allways, and forever!
