New Cold Cave – “Life Magazine”

Philadelphia BTW Cold Cave is an interesting entity, straddling noise, synth-pop, darkwave, power electronics, and art/transgressive literature via their Heartworm Press. (You might recognize their current cover star Marti Domination from Cremaster 1.) Wesley Eisold remains the central creator, it seems, but he’s joined by a revolving cast that includes ex-Xiu Xiu member Caralee McElroy, the writer (and MJ fan) Max G. Morton, Dominick Fernow (aka Prurient), and J. Benoit. The forthcoming first proper full-length Loves Comes Close features a mix of these forces. See, for instance, the McElroy-fronted “Life Magazine,” which offers a sunnier switchup.
