The Cave Singers — Banshee (February 19th, 2016)

      The Cave Singers — Banshee (February 19th, 2016)  The Cave Singers — Banshee (February 19th, 2016)★  Spousta kapel by prodala své ledviny, aby dostala kontrakt na značkách Matador a Jagjaguwar. Tito folksteři však své páté album už nevydali na těchto labelech a to i přesto, že předešlé No Witch a Naomi mají skvělé umístění v Billboard Top Heatseekers #10 a #19. Zvolili IndieGoGo kampaň a nezávislou cestu. Trio toužilo po úplném osvobození, návratu ke své vlastní hudbě, její kontrole a zachování úplného vlastnictví nejen práv, ale i zvukové estetiky. Na počátku bylo ‘slovo’ počínaje riffem kytaristy Dereka Fudeska, následně odeslaným Pete Quirkovi, který přišel s lyrickými nápady. Takto vznikla úvodní píseň “That’s Why”. Atributy jsou: okamžitě rozeznatelný Quirkův klouzavý hlas, jako když děláte rekognoskaci terénu pomocí skřítka, rázná a pevná basa, ‘crunchy’ kytara a jednoduchá bicí souprava. Warning! Také čteš tu křupavou kytarovou linku v pozadí? Je to chytré, hned zkraje ztrácíš vší pochybnost, že je to něco jiného než Cave Singers. Nebyli by to CS, kdyby neměli v rukávu několik nových triků: když poklesnou do svého nejhlubšího rejstříku temp někdy na můstku ve fázi tří minut. Věřil by někdo, že můstek se dá ošetřit pomocí dvou tónů ústní harmonikou? Ačkoli rytmika se jeví s poměrně stabilní potencí, je tu pro jistotu skrz–naskrz kadence, nenápadně přidávající některé funky textury, rolující jako velké pneumatiky na Dakaru. Zdá se, že zvolili správnou cestu, vědí, co chtějí a zachovali si svou ryzí identitu, což dokazuje text úvodní písně “If my hand is what you want/ Let’s go outside,” ... “Do we know what we want?/ And that’s why we’re singing out.” Album je pestré, každá píseň má svůj osobitý výraz, žádná nezačíná ani nekončí jako předchozí. Dávám vysoké hodnocení a jedno z alb února.  © With kindness permission: Peter Dervin Photography / The Cave Singers at Treefort Music fest 2014 (Music Festival)

[Plus, the Seattle trio announce fresh North American tour dates]
★   Over the course of eight years, The Cave Singers have called some impressive labels their home. Their first two records were released on Matador, with the band then signing to Jagjaguwar for their next two LPs , including 2013’s Naomi. Loads of bands would sell their kidneys for that kind of name backing, but for their latest offering, the Seattle indie folksters have decided to stitch up the wound. After a successful IndieGoGo campaign, the band will self–release their fifth studio album, Banshee, on February 19th, 2016.★   The trio is bringing the music back to themselves, retaining complete ownership not only of the rights, but of the sound. They wrote the record just like they did back in the day, starting with a riff from guitarist Derek Fudesko being sent to Pete Quirk, who would come up with the lyrical ideas. After a bit of back and forth, songs like lead single “That’s Why” were the result.     © ★  Derek Fudesco  guitar, bass pedals / The Cave Singers, Hollywood Palladium, Author: Andrew Youssef
★   “That’s Why” opens with a strolling bass that quickly gets swallowed up in the fuzz of a crunchy guitar and the stomp of a simple drum kit. It’s when Quirk’s instantly recognizable voice slides in that you lose all doubt this is anything but a Cave Singers track. But he has some new tricks up his sleeve as he drops down into his lowest register ever on the bridge. Though the drive may seem rather steady, there’s a cadence throughout that subtly adds some funky textures to the rolling number. It’s the band being who and what they want to be, on their own terms. “If my hand is what you want/ Let’s go outside,” Quirk sings. “Do we know what we want?/ And that’s why we’re singing out.” ★   http://consequenceofsound.net/

★  Banshee — self (February 19th, 2016)
Notes: The back cover art somehow made it past everyone in the band missing track 2 “Lost in the Tide”. It was too late once we caught it, so this first run of 1000 LP’s will have the wrong track listing on the back and no bar code.
★  The Cave Singers have also announced the first leg of tour dates behind Banshee, which begins with a December run through Canada supporting Current Swell. They’ll then trek the West Coast come February.
