CAVE - US

Tremors rhythmically shaking your place - the air's gone electric! You've seen this kind of weather before…but, you weren't expecting it today. This is the beginning of Allways.  

During the making of the last album, Threace, CAVE was in the process of becoming a quintet. They toured the world afterwards, playing on four continents and eighteen countries - as close to everywhere as they could get. Then they took a minute. They recorded it over time, in Chile and then Chicago. You can hear all of this, the energy of liveness and consolidating expanded possibilities within their new alignment, the time away, the distance, and the freshness of returning to recorded sounds, everywhere on Allways.

CAVE digs down, driving into a pulse and staying there for as much of FOREVER as they can (though it's really only a single blissed glance into the infinite). In the past, much has been made of CAVE's use of particular compelling tropes, but man, their inspiration comes from everywhere! When we listen to the new CAVE; we're hearing guitars (lots of 'em) bubbling under, scratching, fanning, locking in and taking off, soaring on acid-washed wings, and keys that pump, burr and whooshin and out of the rhythms. Fuck man, we're even hearing vocals! We hear space, groove and rock, flying together. This is CAVE, Allways. 


Allways is as mercurial as it is highly listenable
— uncut ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
It’s all very exotic and confusing at the same time!
— Tiny mix tapes
Allways showcase a band reconfigured as a kind of hippy Meters. It’s an unlikely transformation, but an appealing one
— Mojo
CAVE is the music you put on to get a stack of music reviews done. No grandiose lyrics to interrupt the flow, only sweet melody and a pounding, primal pathway to the mother groove.
— Under The Radar ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
Few bands have the courage to trust fully in it and/or in their ability to not only maintain but give heart and texture to it, but Cave do, and the result is riveting. Allways is their warmest-sounding record to date, and its Delphic charms are a pleasure to get lost in
— All Music ★★★★★★★★☆☆
