:: The Cave Singers ::
21 January 2008 / Matador Records / 10 Trk CD

With just three of them to share the musical duties, The Cave Singers create a vivid and expansive sound. The Seattle trio exploit a fondness for 60’s folky rock and bluesy echoes. Singer Peter Quirk sometimes hangs only by his fingertips to the melodies, but tracks like “Elephant Clouds” are just as interesting as they are tuneful. “New Monuments” owes almost as much to Bob Dylan in the bleakest of moods as it does to the crawl of modern guitar fuelled, sinister ballads. It’s this mix of wired torch songs and elegantly natural folkiness that gives the album such a rugged, widescreen charm worth repeated investigation.
