There’s going to be a lot of these ‘insert band name’ tour starts tonight! posts from me over the next month, so make sure you’re not caught out with gig clashes by keeping up to date with the Tours page.  Europe’s the place to be in November it seems.  At least for the majority of Matador’s roster.  As I write, Cold Cave should have just touched down on UK soil to head straight to Bristol to start their 10 date tour.

Cold Cave tomorrow at the Rogan Bouwerie Shop

(photo of Cold Cave at FYF Fest last week poached from Darling Darling blog)

A little under a year ago Fucked Up took over the Rogan Store here in New York for that epic 12-hour show. Tomorrow, Cold Cave is set to perform in that very space as part of a special, free event put on by the folks at Rogan. Will there be another John Joseph cameo this year? Hey, you never know…

ROGAN and The Smile along with Bowery district neighbors join forces to bring the party downtown with THE ROGAN LINEUP – an eclectic collective of events from 6pm-12am and perhaps even later.

The ROGAN Bouwerie shop, which formerly housed the Bouwerie Lane Theatre, will reach back into its theatrical roots and set the stage for the ROGAN LINEUP – a celebration of fashion, music and film.

FASHION: ROGAN opens its doors to designers Matohu, Risto, Ajna, daraGOY and Salvor.

MUSIC: ROGAN invites some of New York’s best noisemakers to perform on the mezzanine. The lineup for the night will include hourly guest DJ sets and a live performance by minimal, industrial synth-pop band, COLD CAVE.

FILM: A screening of rarely-seen footage shot by Albert Maysles including Little Edie, Sharon Tate, Ringo Starr and more. Also, photographic episodes by Anna Gaskell and film shorts from thought provoking artists. We will also be selling 12 limited edition ROGAN customized Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts

The Rogan Bouwerie Shop is located at 330 Bowery (@Bond St.) in NYC.

Welcome: Cold Cave

Over the past 18 months, we’ve encountered a series of maddeningly limited vinyl and cassette releases* from the fantastic Philadelphia outfit, Cold Cave. With records on Dais, Hospital Productions and What’s Your Rupture, Cold Cave effortlessly marry elements of experimental noise, sound collage and synth pop. Last month, they released their debut longplayer and one of the most exciting debut albums we’ve heard, ‘Love Comes Close’, on their own publishing house, Heartworm Press. Not surprisingly, it sold out immediately.

We are happy to announce that Matador will be re-releasing ‘Love Comes Close’ worldwide on November 3 as well as additional odds and ends to be announced shortly.

LoveComesClosecover

Cold Cave is led by musical journeyman Wesley Eisold and is joined by an orbiting line-up that includes fellow allies Caralee McElroy (formerly of Xiu Xiu), Dominick Fernow (contemporary noise icon Prurient) and Max G. Morton (celebrated author).

We’ve provided two downloadable mp3s from the album:

“The Laurels of Erotomania” (160kbps mp3) showcases album’s rhythmic sensibility with menacing dissonance dappled atop.

“Life Magazine” (160kbps mp3), already an online favorite, brings sonic warmth emerging from Cold Cave’s electronic landscapes, and as The Fader writes, “swims soft, an unmistakable pop bubble bursting bar after bar.”

Cold Cave have collaborated with Prurient, contributed to 2009’s No Fun Fest and have gigged with groups ranging from NON to Comet Gain. You can find Cold Cave on the West Coast in September with many more dates being confirmed as we speak.

September 3: Soda Bar, San Diego w/ Crocodiles & Strange Boys
September 4: The Casbah, San Diego w/ Glass Candy
September 5: LA Historic State Park, Los Angeles: FYF Fest (w/ Black Lips, Lightning Bolt, Fucked Up, Times New Viking, Kurt Vile & More)

* latecomers can find many of these tracks compiled on the Hospital Productions collection ‘Cremations
