  1. sweet. stoked. just to be clear, it states a coupon for digital download comes w/ vinyl. does that mean if I buy the vinyl, I’ll also be able to download the entire record digitally at on extra cost (the ‘coupon’ term threw me off, right or wrong)? thanks – already looking forward to show in Philly!

  2. really blah? Their last record was impeccably produced; every song. and this new one, I can’t imagine being any better. sure, like all art, I suppose it’s subjective, ultimately, but man, I thought the last record and this song are PERFECTLY produced. What could be better do you think? (for the record – and yeah, I’ll toot my own horn here – I am a recording engineer/record producer, having done both for Bardo Pond’s “Amanita” and “Lasped” on Matador). If I was to weigh in/critique anything, wrt Cold Cave, I’d say they need a little something more visual for their live shows, since the 3 of them up front are all behind keyboards/moogs/synths (they were great at Matador 21 fest!). perhaps Jennifer Clavin – who is straight up hot (yeah, I said it) – could grab a keytar (what a dumb word) for a couple songs like Howard Jones used to use – that would rule!

  3. gotta disagree with the blah… this new track is brutally good stuff. LOVE the sound. it’s like a perfect hybrid of the early cold cave noise onslaught and the “love comes close” sound.
