This month marks Cave’s triumphant return to Europe for a bonafide tour – including a single date in the Cave-thirsty UK, with a huge run through Spain, naturally! To celebrate, their first full-length Cave album, Psychic Psummer, is back in print after years out of it. Questing listeners can once again drop the needle on the launch-pad moment where Cave came into their own, evolving into a collective capable of full-length mastery. Their expertise in collating trippy dance jams of all colors started here, leading to further evolutions and triumphs on their subsequent releases NeverendlessThreace and last year’s incredibly fresh and fearsome jammer,  Allways.

Psychic Psummer was made not long after Cave had migrated to Chicago from Columbia MO, and it reflects the hectic loft-style of the their punk/DIY/house show days. Ten years on, these are radical early soundings of their trademark studio style, with relentless tempo-keeping, drone-fascination, keys and neat-cut arrangement/production, alongside guitars and bass often in overdrive plus dubby, aggro’d-out chanting in and out of the mix. Fusing their fascinations with soaring energy, Cave covered lots of ground while making an oddly timeless album. Hopefully this Psychic Psummer’s the endless one

First full length album released by American Space/Psychedelic Rock band Cave.
