Friend of SOTC Max G. Morton and his band, Cold Cave, have signed to Matador records. Cold Cave, which has expanded from its early days as a Philadelphia-based domestic project for Morton and Heartworm proprietor Wes Eisold to something more dynamic and inclusive (the band now includes Caralee McElroy, formerly of Xiu Xiu, and Prurient’s Dominick Fernow), recently put out Love Comes Close themselves. Matador will re-release the record on November 3, with some added value TBA. The openly nostalgic New Order homage that is “Love Comes Close” and the Pet Shop Boys tweaking “Youth and Lust” have replaced “The Trees Grew Emotions and Died” as our anthems with these guys; Matador has two other tracks from the record, “Life Magazine” and “The Laurels of Erotomania,” available for download at the label’s site. Congratulations and a salute to all involved.
Welcome: Cold Cave [Matador]
