The ever-busy Wes Eisold released a new song under his Cold Cave moniker last week titled "Nausea, the Earth and Me." When that single came out, I wondered out loud if we could expect to see a physical release sometime soon -- Cold Cave have been on a run of seven inches lately -- but according to Eisold's personal publishing house/record imprint The Heartworm, there's no use holding your breath as there are currently no plans for a physical release. Last Friday (10/18), though, Cold Cave announced that "Nausea, the Earth and Me" is available to download as part of a three-track EP via iTunes.
In other Wes Eisold news, Cold Cave's Facebook page linked to a stream of Anti Aquarian's first and only EP, Chrome Jesus, today. It's an awesome 10-minute melange of noise, dance-y minimalist electronics and sound effects overlaid with field-recording style chatter that, at one point, develops into an impromptu snippet of Madonna's "Like a Prayer" sung by what sounds like a group of drunk girls. The EP was originally issued as a cassette limited to 200 copies on Dominick Fernow's Hospital Production and should be available on iTunes soon. Meanwhile listen to a stream of Chrome Jesus below.
Speaking of Dominick Fernow, he just released a new Vatican Shadow album titled Remember Your Black Day and will be playing a Halloween show at Output with Silent Servant.
