As Cold Cave, Wesley Eisold has had to evade the weight of his own musical references while emulating codified genres such as '80's new wave, post-industrial, and morose synth-pop. On the strength of debut LP Love Comes Close, Eisold managed to get signed to Matador, subsequently dropped, and has since released a series of compelling EPs that further established him as a bombastic and self-aware new wave acolyte. Ignore the sweltering weather and wear black leather when he plays 285 Kent Avenue, with support from Boyd Rice and NON.
