Cold Cave

Tonight (9/10) is Fashion's Night Out in the Bowery (one of many Fashion Week events happening in the city this week), which, aside from being a great chance to get a new pair of slacks, is your doorway to a free performance by Cold Cave at Rogan Store at 10pm. The flyer is posted below.

The recent Matador signees will put out their debut LP, Love Comes Close, on November 3rd. Two tracks from that are posted above.

The band's upcoming schedule includes two other NYC shows: they open for Faust at MHOW on October 1st, a show that's part of WFMU Fest at the venue.

They're also opening for Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. at Terminal 5 on November 21st.

Sonic Youth, labelmates with Cold Cave, were recently forced to reschedule their upcoming west coast tour (and cancel two shows) because Lee Renaldo fractured his wrist while playing tennis. "Tickets for the original dates will be honored. If necessary, refunds will be available at the point of purchase." New and upcoming dates are below...

Cold Cave is led by musical journeyman Wesley Eisold and is joined by an orbiting line-up that includes fellow allies Caralee McElroy (formerly of Xiu Xiu), Dominick Fernow (contemporary noise icon Prurient) and Max G. Morton (celebrated author).

only one cold cave song sounds like new order. everybody has influences. they have a mixture of sound that makes them original.

Sarah Lipstate is in the group now instead of Max G. Morton

I agree that everyone has influences and building off those influences is common. But I don't understand the 'backing' behind Cold Cave. I don't think they are all that interesting. They are not doing anything. They are not breaking any new boundaries. Of course there is nothing wrong with that....if you want the same ol' thing. I think their choice of sounds are a bit polished new digital junk. I like most of what hospital, heartworm press (that T.A.S.K record is amazing!) and dais puts out....but cold cave is just meh. I'm hoping during a show they will stop everything and say, "hey...the jokes on you. We just made these songs to see if you would actually like them, we don't"
