Sophomore album out soon with Euro-tour to follow
So, this kind of came out of the blue. We've known and liked the Bristol based punk-trio Caves for years (they played NYNS in 2011 and 2012) and earlier this year Dave got in touch to see whether we'd be interested in doing the CD and digital release of their next album (Yo-Yo Records are once again releasing the vinyl). We said yes... Tentatively.
Well, the tentativeness went out the window the second Betterment landed. This is by far the best thing the band have recorded. The production (a sterling job by Peter Miles) now gives all the songs the same urgency the band seem able to conjure up time and time again live and, thanks largely to the fact that it was recorded near-live, the band's energy completely remains intact.
More news as we get closer to release and a full Caves bio/gig dates will be added the site shortly - and, Jesus, there are a lot of them!
Anyway, as a taster of what's to come here are two brand new tracks from the album. "Rubino" especially had me grinning from ear to ear on first listen so please enjoy.
Welcome aboard Caves!
