Cold Cave – “Black Magic Punks” (Coliseum Cover)

The last time we heard a new track from Cold Cave was over a year ago, when they released their moody single "Don't Blow Up The Moon," but now the band has resurfaced to share a cover of Coliseum's "Black Magic Punks." The original song was on Coliseum's brooding 2013 release Sister Faith,… More »

Cold Cave, Dillinger Escape Plan, & Korn Oneohtrix Point Never Replace Death Grips On NIN/Soundgarden Tour

In addition to breaking our hearts by breaking up, Death Grips also left Trent Reznor hanging by canceling all of their tour dates after they were announced as openers for the Nine Inch Nails/Soundgarden tour. Right after it happened, Reznor tweeted, "sorry everyone… why would I have ever thought those dudes could kee… More »

Cold Cave – “Don’t Blow Up The Moon”

Cold Cave's latest "Don't Blow Up The Moon" is a welcome return to the project's moodier and murkier side after 2011's Cherish the Light Years veered towards a more polished and clean sound. The song serves as the B-side to "Nausea, The Earth, and Me" and is the last in a series of single… More »

Cold Cave – “Meaningful Life”

"Meaningful Life" is the B-side to Cold Cave's recently-released "Black Boots" 7". This track is a bit more timid than its A-side with foreboding lounge music vibes but a whiff of Young Marble Giants-esque sweetness. Check it out below. More »

Cold Cave – “Black Boots” Video

Cold Cave go full acid trip collage in their video for "Black Boots." The clip was directed by Slava Tsukerman, who is known for his 1980s cult film Liquid Sky, a film recognized for heavily influencing the electroclash scene in the early 2000s. The plot of Liquid Sky revolves around a New Wave nightclub,… More »

Cold Cave – “Black Boots”

Wes Eisold describes the new Cold Cave A-side as, "Cool nihilism. Existential, groovy, psychedelia." I think the former term fits "Black Boots" pretty well, insofar as it means anything at all. The latter, though? Sorry, but "existential, groovy, psychedelia" this is not. Maybe "DeLillo-esque, urban, goth"? Or "violent, subterranean, death-rock"? Or "pale, rigid, post-punk"? I… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2013

After experimenting with three formats for the Monthly Mix -- MP3 zip, Spotify playlist, Soundcloud set, etc. -- in March we finally came upon a solution that pleased everyone: all of them. And so, for you, here is the month's music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited… More »

Cold Cave – “A Little Death To Laugh” Video

Cold Cave's "A Little Death To Laugh" 7" was released last September -- the band has since released a new 7", "Oceans With No End" -- but they've just now dropped the video for "Little Death." The clip focuses tight on Wes Eisold singing the song, but two nearly identical film reels are… More »

Cold Cave – “People Are Poison”

A few weeks ago we got to hear the title track off Cold Cave's new EP, Oceans With No End. Now the group's mastermind, Wes Eisold, is letting us hear the B-side to the two-track EP. The nicely named "People Are Poison" is another searing synth blast of gothic dread, albeit a few shade… More »

Cold Cave – “Oceans With No End”

There are a lot of bands today doing some take on '80s darkwave, but none are in the class of Wes Eisold's Cold Cave, in my opinion. The band's new release, the Oceans With No End EP, is scheduled for release "soon" via Deathwish, but today, we've got its title track, a claustrophobic synth-goth… More »

Divine Fits, Cold Cave @ Fonda Theater, Hollywood 11/4/12

Divine Fits wrapped up their headlining tour in Hollywood at the Fonda Theater with a scintillating set that featured the chirping synthesizers of "The Salton Sea," the knife-sharp guitars of "Like Ice Cream," and the conflicted angst of "For Your Heart." Divine Fits will be back on the road later opening up for the Black… More »

Cold Cave – “A Little Death To Laugh”

Wes Eisold, frontman for the dark, scraping, generally awesome New York new wave band Cold Cave, recently announced a new lineup for the band; it now has former members of Blood Brothers, Samhain, LCD Soundsystem, and AFI. They're working on a new album now. But on Cold Cave's latest tracks, the band's sole member i… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: June 2012

It's our first mixtape of summer! Accordingly, you should probably just act first and think later and just download it with reckless abandon, as you should do absolutely everything now that it is the season of impulsive behavior. But if you are incapable of such youthful indiscretion without examining the fine print/weighing every possible life… More »

The Jesus And Mary Chain, Cold Cave, Phantom Ratio @ House Of Blues San Diego, San Diego 6/17/12

Scottish noise legends The Jesus And Mary Chain wrapped up their short tour of California last night will a beautifully noisy set at the House Of Blues San Diego. Jim Reid's voice hasn't aged and William Reid still can dial up storms of fuzz. It was also a bonus to see Phil King formerly of… More »

Northside 2012 In Photos

Northside registered some memorable moments this year, from Kitty Pryde living the meme at Knitting Factory to a sold out Cameo Lounge for Stereogum's showcase (hat tip to Guards, for winning the night -- and the fest's -- breakout act honors). Photographer wagz2it roved the north Williamsburgian terrain and assembled a spread of… More »

Cold Cave, White Ring, Burning Star Core @ Europa, Brooklyn 6/14/12 (Northside Festival)

Last night the Northside Festival kicked off in north Williamsburg. Last night's most appetizing bills were at Europa, or at Glasslands (which had BTW Beacon and Sweden's Niki & The Dove), or Music Hall Of Williamsburg (which had GZA do Liquid Swords), though things really kick into full swing today, with a big show… More »

Cold Cave – “Believe In My Blood”

Cold Cave's second proper full-length Cherish The Light Years amplified the urgency in Wes Eisold's icy new wave, and was a hell of a record as a result. Recently Matador let go of a previously unreleased b-side from the record, "Believe In My Blood," demonstrating that even the sessions' castoffs were bloodier, faster, synth-earworm-ier tha… More »

Give Up The Ghost/American Nightmare Reunite

Before he started making elegantly catchy gothic drone-pop in Cold Cave, Wes Eisold led a very different sort of band: Boston hardcore bashers American Nightmare. (A legal issue eventually forced A.N. to change their name to Give Up The Ghost, but let's stick with the original name here, since it's obviously vastly superior.) The band… More »
