Chicago-based psychedelic/Krautrock enthusiasts Cave craft tight and funky free-form slabs of groove-heavy instrumental space rock that have earned them comparisons to everyone from Can to Stereolab to Funkadelic.
Formed in 2006, Cave grew out of the ashes of a handful of local Chicago bands, as well as Missouri-based Warhammer 48K. The band released its full-length debut, Psychic Psummer, on Important Records in 2009. In 2010 the band moved to Drag City, releasing the EP Pure Moods before following up with another full-length, Neverendless, in 2011. The minimal and heavily edited Threace appeared in 2013, and was followed by a career-spanning rarities collection, Release, in 2014. There was a four-year gap between records, but Cave duly returned in 2018 with a new record of original material. Allways was recorded in Chile and Chicago, and mastered at Abbey Road. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
