7 FLEXI $5.40
***“CAVE doesn't waste any time. Four bars into this nameless cut and they're all locked into the groove. The groove is hypnotic, but it's in the subtle changes where Cave carves out a niche for themselves. There are loads of bands out there that can hold down a groove and improvise, but very few are as in tune with each other and tight as Cave is. Cave can trick you into believing they're freely jamming and turn on a dime without notice. Not an easy task. Cave are excellent at sleight of hand and efficient to boot. Efficient one must be when limited to the finite space allowed on a 7" flexi disc and I'd venture to say that no band has succeeded more wildly in filling up a flexi with a track that seemingly only lasts a minute. Actual track time: 5:01. This autobahn-ready instrumental picks up where 2011's Neverendless left off. However, Cave aficionados will likely only recognize three names on the "Cave on this recording is:" list. Those three being REX MCMURRY, DAN BROWNING and COOPER CRAIN. This flexi disc is the first recording released with the recent addition (reunion) with Jerusalem and the Starbaskets guitarist JEREMY FREEZE. Also appearing here are Columbia, MO ex-pat JOSH JOHANNPETER (MAHJONGG, WATERBABIES, 1900s, HIVE DWELLERS) and bicycle wheel improviser ROB FRYE. EDIE FAKE’s tribe-adelic art suits this release perfectly. 500 were pressed, if you're asking. Zero will remain, if you're sleeping. No sleep 'til winter! Endless Summer Flexi Series!”—Lance of Permanent Records. Numbered edition of 500 copies.
