Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release, the third in a string of awesome full-length adventures from Chicago's Cave. Threace is an album that appeals on all levels: animal, abstract and alien, and all at once. Threace is a real 'back to the lab' kind of album for Cave - with a few more guitars and a few less keyboards on board, the band is energized and ready to try things in a new way. Threace finds the band inhabiting their cut-up aesthetic with tremendous ease and fewer reference points than before. They access new depths of meditative stasis, and then torpedo the dream and turn on a dime to ride the riffs again. It's no wonder that they spent such quality time on the sounds, because the writing now has the close fit of a second skin. From exotica to erotica to rock 'n yuh, the songs are lived in, with their own running logic and muscle memory. Now the music plays the band.
