Synopsis

Product Description
The second album from Seattle's CAVE SINGERS is a gorgeous, rich folky stew hitting musical touchstones from Led Zeppelin III (think Bron Yr Aur Stomp) to Iron and Wine, CCR, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and Will Oldham. With a healthy dollop of the more mournful Stevie Nicks songs from Fleetwood Mac's mid-'70s period. Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Ladyhawk), the album is far richer and more interesting sounding than their debut. The band perform their dramatic, forlorn and occasionally triumphant music in a wonderfully autumnal haze.

CD Reviews

Subtle and Outstanding
B. Sullivan | 10/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you have heard their first album, "Invitation Songs," then you know how simple yet memorable their songs can be. This album is more coherent thematically and probably as a result is not as catchy on the first listen. But after a couple of times through, individual songs start to stand out and the development, while more subtle, is overall more satisfying. If you like Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, and the rest of the bigger lights of the alt/indie/folk genre, you'll probably love The Cave Singers. And if you can, see them live. They played a tiny venue in Montreal last month and the energy and sound that 3 guys can generate was amazing."
Fantastically Simple
BPA | Louisville, KY | 09/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simple two chord songs add up to a very complex album. This has quickly become on of my favorite albums. I've tried taking it out and listening to something else a couple times but have yet to be able to make it through another album before wanting to put this one back in. The melodies stick with you the entire day but don't ever seem to get old."
