The Cave Singers – “No Witch” out February 22!

We are pleased as punch for the announcement of The Cave Singers third LP and Jagjaguwar debut, No Witch. It will be released on February 22, 2011 in the US and February 28 in the UK.

At first, we were ardent admirers of The Cave Singers with the release of Invitation Songs. Welcome Joy brought us closer to the group upon their collaboration with Amber Webber of Black Mountain and Lightning Dust.

And now, we’d like to think that the third time is far beyond a charm. We are proud to call The Cave Singers family and bring No Witch to you. MORE AFTER THE JUMP

By all accounts, No Witch is The Cave Singers’ rock record. Laid to tape with dark wizard producer Randall Dunn (Black Mountain, Sunn O))), Boris), No Witch is grander and more lush than the group’s previous efforts. It’s also a nervier, scrappier affair: greasy guitars buck and rear up; Eastern-influenced blues snake through songs; gospel choirs rise up like tidal waves. There are big, grinning nods to Beggar’s Banquet-era Stones, the best of Mellencamp (“Clever Creatures”) and the juke joint legends of Mississippi like Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside (“Black Leaf” and “No Prosecution If We Bail”). Of course, it’s all filtered through that particular, magical Cave Singers formula: Pete Quirk’s reedy, behind-the-beat delivery and existential wordplay, Derek Fudesco’s lyrical guitar runs and drummer Marty Lunds’ no nonsense rhythms.

No Witch is a newfound sheen to the aura that made The Cave Singers’ music so special to begin with. All told, there’s treasure to be found here for the biker gang weekender, the double rainbow chaser and all that falls in the valley between them.
