Cherish The Light YearsRecorded with Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Cold Caves second album is a tour-de-force of pounding synths and soaring romantic melody. It manages to unite Power, Corruption and Lies-era New Order, late 70s Scott Walker, and the dark stadium pop of mid-period Depeche Mode, with the sensibilities of artists like LCD Soundsystem and The National. Drawing from all these influences, bandleader Wesley Eisold has crafted a tightly wrought, ambitious love letter to New York City. With his deep vocals fully to the fore on every track, Cherish The Light Years is a remarkable progression from 2008s Love Comes Close.
Eisold is backed by diverse associates: Dominick Fernow (Prurient) on electronics, Jennifer Clavin (Mika Miko) on backing vocal and synthesizer, guitarists Tonie Joy (Moss Icon, Universal Order of Armageddon), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Sean Martin (Hatebreed), bassists Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez) and drummer Guy Licata (Hercules and Love Affair).1.

Full Cold MoonCold Cave is the creative rebirth of acclaimed musician and writer Wesley Eisold. Cutting his teeth in underground bands American Nightmare (Give Up The Ghost) and Some Girls, Eisold's body of work has truly effected a generation of listeners. Through constant cross-pollination Eisold has gained mass appeal, influencing underground and popular culture with his ever evolving artistic vision.
With an already prolific number of releases, Cold Cave has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of Darkwave and Synth Pop sub-genres. Propelling Cold Cave to perform at world class museums The Getty and the Guggenheim, as well as performances with legends Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Nine Inch Nails, among others.
Deathwish are proud to announce "Full Cold Moon" from Cold Cave, now for the first time on 12"LP vinyl format (a CD collection was released on Eisold's Heartworm imprint in 2014).
"Full Cold Moon" is a compilation of EP recordings originally individually released in 2013, now presented as one collection; "A Little Death to Laugh", "Oceans With No End", "God Made the World", "Black Boots", and "Nausea, the Earth and Me". Notably this is also the first vinyl appearance of the song "Dandelion" as well as the entire "Nausea, the Earth and Me" EP (previously only available on limited CD and Digital formats). This is Cold Cave at it's most artistically skeletal, similar to the celebrated "Cremations" and "Love Comes Close" releases. Twelve minimal compositions driven by Eisold's synth derived hooks, alluring vocals, and compelling character.1. A Little Death To Laugh

Love Comes CloseLove Comes Close is the debut full-length from Philly/New York quartet Cold Cave. Matador is now reissuing the instantly sold-out self-released album from August of 2009. The warm, rich synth pop sounds are laced with equal measures of romance and nihilism and somewhere in these realms of negative hiss and out-of-body bliss, there is a peak awaiting all who enter. Singer/keyboardist/songwriter Wesley Eisold is joined by Caralee McElroy (ex-Xiu Xiu), Dominick Fernow (Prurient) and Sarah Lipstate (ex-Parts & Labor, Noveller). Eisold himself served time with hardcore punk legends American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost and Some Girls.1. Cebe And Me

ADAD-SAC-5647xCult Of Youth
Love Will PrevailSean Ragon has been active in the DIY punk, industrial and experimental music communities on the east coast for over 15 years. Ragon also runs a record store and label in Brooklyn (Heaven Street and Blind Prophet Records, respectively). He has been recording under the moniker of Cult of Youth for the last five years.
Cult of Youth's last album produced by Chris Coady was a huge leap forward for the band, which had expanded to a four piece. It landed them on tours with Zola Jesus, Cold Cave and Iceage last summer and caused quite a stir not only among more indie-centric press outlets such as Pitchfork and Stereogum but with underground publications such as Heathen Harvest and Special Interests magazine as well.
For this album Ragon built his own recording studio from scratch in the back of his record store. This allowed him to control every aspect of the album and to take his time recording; in addition to vocals, he plays five different instruments on Love Will Prevail (electric and acoustic guitar, trombone, synth, and bass). He also engineered and mixed the entire album by himself.
For long time fans of the project, Love Will Prevail sees the marriage of the spontaneity of the earlier releases with the better recording quality of the more recent eponymous LP. This record features contributions from Glenn Maryansky on drums and Christiana Key on violin as well as percussion from the enigmatic Ning Nong and female vocals from former Battletorn vocalist (and Sean's long term girlfriend) Beverly Hames.
Love Will Prevail expands on the psychedelic neofolk foundation of the early work and adds lush atmospheres not dissimilar from Austrian post-industrial futurists Nový Svt (or even the more haunting side of late-60s Miles Davis). There is also an intentional nod to the Crass Records bands that influenced Ragon as a teenager and a tasteful hint of Velvet Underground worship.
The lyrical content is also fairly politically charged this time around, and serves as a plea for peace in a world gone mad. A far cry from the first self released single, Train To Kill, perhaps. The first single, "Man and Man's Ruin" finally realizes the majestic beauty that has always been bubbling under the surface of Ragon's work. Love Will Prevail is by far and away Cult of Youth's crowning achievement and it is the true embodiment of DIY idealism.1. Man and Man's Ruin

"Carefully crafted, perfectly balanced, addictively
melodic" - ROCK-A-ROLLA
"In cold surroundings, moments of warmth arrive
with life-affirming brightness, and that's what
makes Siskiyou's music so memorable" - BLURT
Siskiyou returns with Nervous, a majestic album of carefully constructed art rock
built around songwriter and lead singer Colin Huebert's stacked acoustic guitars
and intimate, whispery vocals. Siskiyou's sound has been previously dubbed a sort
of 'Northern Gothic', conjuring cold winds and the life-saving warmth of temporary
shelters and tiny hearth fires. With Nervous, the band continues to push beyond
the crisp lo-fi intimacy of its early work, and has forged its most confident and
finely-crafted recording to date, moving fully into auteur and chamber-pop
territory with a song cycle that brings to mind the meticulousness of mood and
sonics found in recent work by PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Tindersticks. Inflected
by an anxious, sussurant restraint, Huebert's voice is supported by the falsetto
backing vocal counterpoint and economical instrumentation of bandmates Erik
Arnesen, Peter Carruthers and Shaunn Watt. Fans of the understated and
underrated 1990s group Swell may also hear a welcome evocation of that group's
acoustic guitar-driven simplicity and austere deployment of adornments.
Following Siskiyou's excellent sophomore release Keep Away The Dead in 2011,
Huebert became afflicted with a serious inner ear condition that eluded
conventional diagnosis. While honouring a previously-scheduled songwriting
residency in Dawson City, Yukon in winter 2012, Huebert found himself grappling
with severe anxiety and an unwelcome interiority, engendered by hyperacusis and
a house that felt utterly haunted. Intense chronic ear-ringing and panic attacks
continued throughout the year, for which conventional medicine was unable to find
any cause or effective treatment; Huebert began focusing on meditation, retreated to
silence for a period, and then began rehearsing his new songs with the band at
extremely low volumes. The songs on Nervous are shot through with the entirety of
this experience: the literal feeling of being trapped in one's head and the physica-lpsychological
feedback loop of debilitating anxiety; the lyrical themes and tense,
whispered singing amidst tightly-wrought compositions and arrangements.
Huebert found solace in new working methods within the controlled environment
of studio-based production and composition, developing new sonic palettes and
pursuing new avenues of instrumental arrangement and recording fidelity.
Working with producer/engineer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett/Final Fantasy, Dusted,
Austra) on most of Nervous, Siskiyou has emerged with by far its most assured,
ambitious and authoritative recordings, while preserving the economy of elements,
deft structures, and assiduous melodic deliberation for which the band has been
rightly celebrated over its two previous albums. In charting escape paths from his
disquieting cranial confinement, Huebert has very much succeeded in setting his
songs out on an expansive canvas, while preserving a palpable sense of nervous
interiority and quiet desperation at their heart.1. Deserter

Shiver + ShakeShiver + Shake was recorded and produced by esteemed Seattle producer Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Blind Melon) at London Bridge Studio.
""Cold Feet Killer" is one of the first and oldest My Goodness songs," singer/guitarist Joel Schneider explains to Purevolume.com. "I actually wrote the majority of the music on acoustic guitar before the band got its start. In a way it was one of the first few songs that ended up inspiring the creation of My Goodness."
Consisting of Schneider and drummer Andy Lum, My Goodness formed in Seattle in 2008 and quickly took the Northwest by storm with their feverish concoction of blues-infused rock. The duo spent years honing their songwriting and playing to growing crowds with bands like Bosnian Rainbows, The Thermals, The Cave Singers and Augustines; all of which has led to this pivotal, career defining moment, the release of their new album, Shiver + Shake.
My Goodness' connection to the Seattle music they grew up on is strikingly audible. Bands from Nirvana and Soundgarden, to bands from the early 00s Seattle scene such as Botch, Blood Brothers, Murder City Devils and Harkonen were on heavy rotation for Schneider and Lum throughout their formative years. Dig deeper still and you find them tapping into a rich seam of blues, old and new - from Muddy Waters through Junior Kimbrough and RL Burnside to the musical sass of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Though a very different prospect, the energy, intensity and attitude of hardcore and the groove of the blues feeds into everything My Goodness does. Ultimately it's all rock music though. Big throbbing rock music.
In the spring of 2014, My Goodness enlisted the help of friend and local Seattle musician Cody Votalato (The Blood Brothers, Jaguar Love) who joined them as a part time member on bass guitar for their first full U.S. tour. Votalato will continue performing live with the band when possible.

Through Chasms, Caves & Titan Woods (Out of Stock)Carpathian Forest formed in Norway in 1990. They began their recording career with the cult demo Bloodlust & Perversion in 1992, then their debut official release appeared in 1995, with the Through
Chasm, Caves And Titan Woods.
Since then the band has recorded several albums, and have also become a class, if unpredictable, live act, as demonstrated on their DVD release We're
Going to Hollywood for This. The band has toured extensively in Europe and also the US.
This recording line-up featured founding members Nattefrost and Nordavind, who were joined by Svein Harald on drums and John Martin Haarr on bass.
Through Chasm, Caves And Titan Woods was a grand entrance onto the black metal stage and instantly ranked Carpathian Forest amongst the strongest
of the many Norwegian Black Metal acts. Whereas many bands were trying to compete to be the fastest though, Carpathian Forest always had a good
understanding of composition, riffs, and atmospherics, thanks to elements of old school metal being used in the songs, mixed with a cold & epic atmosphere layered with synths & a raw, primitive approach to the productions to create this fine, cult slab of metal.1. Carpathian Forest
