Cave is a psychedelic drone band based in Chicago, Illinois consisting of keyboardist Rotten Milk, guitarist/organist Cooper Crain, bassist Dan Browning and drummer Rex McMurry. The band was formed in Columbia, Missouri in 2006, and has released two full-length albums, Psychic Psummer (2009) and Hunt Like Devil/Jamz (2008), and an EP on Drag City Records. Cave played the Pitchfork Music Festival in 2010. Cave was formed in 2006 as an informal collaborative project by Columbia, Missouri friends Cooper Crain, Dan Browning, and Rex McMurry, with Chicago native Rotten Milk. At the time, Crain and McMurry were also members of the now-defunct Missouri band Warhammer 48K. When Warhammer disbanded in 2008 the four began seriously writing and recording music together.
In 2008 Cave released their first full-length album Hunt Like Devil/Jamz on Permanent Records. The following year they released another album on Important Records, Psychic Psummer, which received a positive review from Pitchfork Media. In 2010 they released an EP on Drag City Records, Pure Moods, which was reviewed favorably by Pop Matters and garnered mixed reviews from Tiny Mix Tapes and Pitchfork.
Cave are considered part of the "Columbia Diaspora", a group bands with members from Columbia, Missouri who now reside in Chicago that includes Mahjongg and Lazer Crystal.
Cooper Crain has released material from his solo project Bitchin' Bajas on Permanent Records and works with other Chicago bands as an analog recording engineer.
Putting a danceable twist on art rock, Krautrock, and avant-garde influences, Chandeliers' kaleidoscopic electronic jams are artful yet accessible. Together the quartet played with adventurous indie rock bands like Icy Demons, Killer Whales, and Michael Columbia and began making electronic music in 2004 as an escape from Chicago's chilly winters, debuting live later that year at the University of Chicago. Their first recording, the Circulation single, arrived two years later, and the albums The Thrush, Dirty Moves, and Roulé (a split with like-minded Chicagoans Mahjongg) between 2008 and 2010 revealed more layers of Chandeliers' entrancing energy. The grooves continued on the album Founding Fathers, released in summer 2012.
Nevada Greene is an instrumental quartet out of Columbia, MO founded in January 2013. The band’s sound blends gentle finger picking and twangy guitar pop melodies with a textural wash of reverb drenched drones and melancholy string orchestration to create a pleasant, midwestern brand of ethereal cacophony. Paired with cinematic projections sourced from vintage family video archives, Nevada Greene's live performance explores notions collective memory and nostalgia.
Nostalgia (From the Greek nostos- a return to home and algia -longing) is a longing for a place and time that no longer exists or never has existed. It is a sentiment of loss and displacement but also a romance with one’s own fantasy. Originally thought of as a curable disease, doctors believed opium and open air could take care of nostalgic symptoms. While this practice has fallen out of fashion, one can never be too cautious and we recommend taking pre-emptive measures for an optimal listening experience.
