It's a new ep, no?

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 14 May 2010 14:54 (4 years ago) Permalink

yes, 3 songs, about 20 minutes

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 14 May 2010 14:55 (4 years ago) Permalink

Ah, I thought from the price on Rough Trade it was a cheap LP rather than an expensive EP. And apparently Norman Records have sold out of them despite them only arriving yesterday. Time to shop around...

Gonna see them at pitchfork lol

These guys are pretty directly up my alley, loving the Pure Moods EP right now.

They were definitely a nice surprise at Pitchfork.

new one! NEVERENDLESS. Just got the promo from Drag City -- more of the same, but that is exactly what i want. Some long jamzzz.

great title

mizzell, Thursday, 7 July 2011 15:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

already "this is the best" is the perfect distillation of what these guys do. 14 minutes of unrelenting awesomeness.

tylerw, Thursday, 7 July 2011 15:03 (3 years ago) Permalink

Think they are planning to go to Australia next year. I'm surprise there are already promos for the new one, don't think it's coming out til the fall?

Trip Maker, Thursday, 7 July 2011 15:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah, i was surprised too. comes out sept. 20.

tylerw, Thursday, 7 July 2011 15:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

Really excited for new CAVE!

my little review of the new one here: http://ow.ly/6bToa
really loving it, annoyed that they seem to have tour dates scheduled in every US city except mine.

tylerw, Wednesday, 24 August 2011 19:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

Try living in Mid Missouri (oh, but they are def playing here)
Their last show in town was in the basement DIY space and it fucking COOKED.

Trip Maker, Wednesday, 24 August 2011 19:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh and your writeup is sweet. OTM.

Trip Maker, Wednesday, 24 August 2011 19:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

is this their thing, playing nontraditional venues? the denver show they played was a totally random head shop/record store/art space that i'd never heard of before and haven't heard of since. god, it was so good.

tylerw, Wednesday, 24 August 2011 19:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

It is sometimes their thing, not always.
They've all got a lot of experience with touring and playing rock shows. Sometimes a non-traditional space is just more attractive.
Sometimes, getting paid is.

Trip Maker, Wednesday, 24 August 2011 19:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

they may have been paid in weed at the show i saw.

lol, the record release show for the new albumw as played on a flatbed truck driving down Milwaukee Avenue here in Chicago. Really wanted to go, but wasn't able to do so.

Check that link I just posted

Trip Maker, Thursday, 22 September 2011 19:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah, didn't click the link, most videos on vimeo won't play at work

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Thursday, 22 September 2011 19:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

this makes me want to drive up to baltimore to see them.

skip, Thursday, 22 September 2011 19:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

as noted upthread, they were pretty godlike for me when i saw 'em last year.

tylerw, Thursday, 22 September 2011 19:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

that video is great -- there are lots of recognizable places, but the parts i like best are the anonymous intersections.

saw these dudes last night they were pretty cool

Art Arfons (La Lechera), Friday, 14 October 2011 18:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

The rhythmic orchestration of the rock band Cave typically unwinds slowly but steadily over lengthy songs. They are often called "roller-rinkin’ rock for the next generation."

Confused about what that phrase means? The band sat down with Eight Forty-Eight to explain what exactly roller-rinkin' rock is and why they are not your typical jammers

Art Arfons (La Lechera), Friday, 14 October 2011 18:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

Gonna see them tonight. So stoked.
Cooper insists that they are a funk band now. Hafta laugh.

Trip Maker, Friday, 14 October 2011 21:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm going tomorrow night, will report back on level of funk.

Art Arfons (La Lechera), Friday, 14 October 2011 21:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

annoyed that they seem to have tour dates scheduled in every US city except mine.
this, still. jealous you guys are seeing them.

tylerw, Friday, 14 October 2011 21:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

Not to rub it in, but I'm gonna get to see them twice on this tour!
Which is cool and all, but the fact that I can't you know BE IN THE BAND and actually go on tour still kind of stings.

Trip Maker, Friday, 14 October 2011 22:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

crash the stage! "i'm back in the band!!"

tylerw, Friday, 14 October 2011 22:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

I get to every now and again.
It's the long hours in the van with the dudes that I really crave though.

Trip Maker, Friday, 14 October 2011 22:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

And they are playing tonight and tomorrow with ANOTHER band that I used to be in.
It's going to be really great to be in the same room with so many good friends.

so psyched, they're playing in Denver next week! at the very same mysterious head shop as last year.

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 8 November 2011 17:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

Playing in my town on Friday night!

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 8 November 2011 17:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

they played for free on monday but i didn't go because i saw that show a few weeks ago

Yasmine Teeth (La Lechera), Tuesday, 8 November 2011 18:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol, well that was a bummer. drove an hour down to denver for this show, sat through two opening acts. then, they announce that THREE more bands are going to play at the club next door, and everyone should go watch those. Wait around, wait around, wait around, and it's 1:15am on a Sunday night and i'm literally falling asleep on my feet. last opening act still going strong. i guess i'm getting old or something, but i can't wait until 2am for a band to play! yeesh.

tylerw, Monday, 14 November 2011 15:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ha. La Lechera, I dj'd that gig in absentia. Cooper just used a bunch of mix tapes i've made for him over the years for the incidental music.
i was surprised that dude who used to pretty much only play keys was now pretty much only playing guitar.
Two different dudes.

They played in town on Halloween. I got to sing a cover of "Sister Ray" with them at the end of the set. Lots of fun.

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 14:49 (9 months ago) Permalink

that sounds awesome -- where's the youtube?

tylerw, Monday, 11 November 2013 15:38 (9 months ago) Permalink

I don't even have a photo!
I was wearing a pink blouse, blue shades, and a blonde wig.

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 15:46 (9 months ago) Permalink

Ugh that sounds SO FUN!! Did you sing the whole thing?! man that sounds like fun.

All I remember from your mix was Bohannon but it was enjoyable!

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 11 November 2013 16:44 (9 months ago) Permalink

We didn't play it for twenty minutes. I sang maybe three verses and improvised a "freakout" that climaxed with repetition of the phrase "don't shake me, lucifer." We were going to cover a Roky Erickson song but current events changed our original plan.

'silver headband' on the new one is so sick. not many can evoke the neu! vibe without resorting to a generic motorik beat. agree with tyler on the rest of it pulling serious fusion moves.
