Regardless of any perceived time between record or tours, CAVE keep such a fluid beat that their actual musical time becomes a universal constant! CAVE‘s music relies equally on energy as well as a formalist rigor, and Allways may be their finest example. CAVE‘s chosen path of expression is bed-rocked in repetitive and interlocking rhythmic patterns, and over the course of their rich catalog, one can easily identify modes and moods that can be described as punk, funk, post-punk, kraut, psych, boogie, and jazz. Yet no matter which way you listen, CAVE sound uniquely like CAVE and nothing (and no one) else, alright?
Perhaps it’s this singular nature that makes “Beaux,” the endlessly pleasing jammer from Allways, so outrageously groovy? We could describe it with various fluff and verbiage and still never quite land on what makes it such an ear-tingling delight. Now “Beaux” can be seen in a way that’s just as wild and stunning as it sounds on record: CAVE present “Beaux”, a video directed by Krzys Piotrowski with VFX from Nick Ciontea! The audio portion of the video for “Beaux” was recorded live to tape in session Labranza with no overdubs as it was being filmed, all in one take. A beautifully kaleidoscopic snapshot of a band with peerless sound and vision, the video for “Beaux” the band shares today.
The band is also hitting the road on some east coast and midwest stops. Tour dates below.
