Cave – Psychic Psummer (2009)

Chicago’s Cave have returned with their distinct blend of momentum rock and it is, fittingly, their most fully realized disc yet. Tighter, funkier, spacier and more driving than anything they’ve done, this is the group at their best, concocting neo-Krautrock grooves that perfectly soundtrack the continued and colorful descent deeper into the new millennium.
Mixing equal parts Can and Stereolab (who, of course, took more than a bit from Can themselves) with a grooving and cruise-worthy psychedelicism propagated by the likes of Funkadelic, Cave manage to sound at once immediately familiar and entirely original, a trait uncommon in today’s increasingly oversaturated music landscape. Where many bands seem to be loosening their belt of late however, Cave is continually tightening, forging their jams into focused demonstrations of their collective potential. -check out review at.. brainwashed.

  1. This I like a lot, you have really posted some absolute gems lately, thanks very much.
    Very glad that I stumbled across your blog, keep up the outstanding work. Happy holidays :)

  2. oh sorry. just returned from my vacation. I had not seen your post before.
    thank you very much! good year for you!
    soon i’ll do some post.. i’m a bit lazy lately :)

  3. Cave are great, and as far as i know they used to play in a band similar in sound to Neurosis or Nomeansno, with a bit of the great K. Crimson thrown in for good mesaure. Their very ‘motorik’ ‘Neverendless’ is on heavy rotation on my turntable… You have a very cool site here. I’ll keep on stopping by. Meanwhile, I play drums in a few trippy bands in Mexico, most ‘notably’ (haha) El Diablo. if you’re interested, do check us out on youtube- you just have to type: el diablo mexican stoner rock… Cool, very cool! Great work!
