ICYMI (Best of 2018): The Incessant Krautrock of Cave’s “Beaux”
We are coming up on year end list time and we realized that we didn’t get around to posting about some of the music that will end up on our “best of” lists. The “ICYMI (Best of 2018)” series allows us to give an appreciative nod to some songs and records we loved this year beyond just dropping them into a list. Enjoy!
If you worship at the alter of motorik beats and guitar-driven koschmine, I’m sure you already count yourself in the coverts of Chicago four piece Cave. The band have been gone for a while (partially because members of the band have been releasing amazing cosmic koschmine with their other band Bitchin’ Bajas), but they are back with another stellar collection of hypnotic repetition and lunging grooves on the Allways LP. Their new record was released by their longtime label Drag City in October and is another mesmerizing collection of jams. Watch the unfold the track “Beaux” above and give the whole record a listen.
