Satiating the Need
A review of “Oceans With No End” (4:35),
Title track from Cold Cave’s forthcoming EP on Deathwish
January 30, 2013
What have we grown to “count on” from Wesley Eisold? Constant evolution while keeping true to his passions… and “Oceans” is no exception. Arguably, one of the greatest lyricists of our generation, Wesley continues to allow us into the inner workings of his heart by articulating emotions in a way few people can. Like most of his works, this track seems to focus on the complications of human interaction, particularly the subject of disappointment. The music itself is a slight departure from what we’ve come to expect from Cold Cave, but as with any evolution, it somehow remains true to its origin. Although this track can be described as “harder” or “more rock oriented” than previous releases (as was the case with Morrissey’s 1992 LP, “Your Arsenal”), true fans will undoubtedly connect with the complex layers of sounds that move us, not just emotionally, but physically (on the dance floor) as well. We look forward to a new LP and seeing Cold Cave perform live this year – all over the world.
Many thanks to Cold Cave for allowing me to preview the track!

Cold CaveFriday, April 27
Heirs to the synthpop noir of New Order, Throbbing Gristle, Soft Cell, and Muslimgauze, Cold Cave are an experimental electronic pop group from Philadelphia and New York City who make melodic synthscapes with driving beats. They acknowledge the dark roots of synthesizer music as well as its potential for making the brightest pop with their hard songs celebrating the contradictory beauty of the human condition. Cold Cave strives for balance, between the ugly and the beautiful, between rupture and rapture. The songs on their debut album Love Comes Close have an immediacy that belies thought-provoking titles like The Laurels of Erotomania and The Trees Grew Emotions And Died. In this way they mark that transitional moment when synthesizer music went from a subversive device for sound collagists to a serious commercial force. Live, they are cerebral and savage, yet sweet and seductive.
The three-part series of live music that accompanies John Chamberlain: Choices, on view through May 13 at the Guggenheim Museum, Divine Ricochet takes its thematic cue from the poetic fusion, chaotic riffing, explosive color and sublime assemblage that characterized Chamberlain’s work.
The series title is borrowed from a 1991 work by the late American sculptor. A lover of music, Chamberlain pushed boundaries as he explored abstraction, rhythm, harmony, and dissonance, providing a vibrant context for contemporary musical experiments in the museum's rotunda. Like Chamberlain's work, the music of Grouper, Julianna Barwick, Cold Cave, and Zola Jesus exemplify the intense push and pull between power and delicacy, structure and abstraction.
8:30 pm: Doors open with a private viewing of John Chamberlain: Choices
10 pm: Performances begin

$27 Individual nonmembers
