Cave - Neverendless

Cave - Neverendless (Drag City)

Deliberately repetitive Chicago space rock, averaging over 8 minutes per song, sounding at times like Trans Am and Stereo Lab, complete with a couple of gonzo 'Baba O'Riley'-like freak-outs. Better yet, massive psych jams that are more aggressive than Spacemen 3, but less guitar driven than Wooden Shjips, also recalling Tortoise on 'On The Rise,' where amazing guitar and keyboard solos are traded and rotated, processed vocal chants are layered, and wah pedals are worshiped. Check out the tour dates or their myspace (!) page.

Dex Romweber Duo - Is That You In The Blue? (Bloodshot)

Another step in the right direction for the resurrection of Dex Romweber, courtesy of Bloodshot Records. The track 'Jungle Drums' brings the classic Dex formula, runaway rockabilly with a blazing sax solo, while there's another short sax blast on the sub-two minute instrumental rocker 'Climb Down'. The album has some Orbison-esque dark ballads, particularly the title track, a few uptempo Eddie Cochrane rockers, and some Dick Dale-ish surf influenced licks. If this keeps up, the deserving Dex may actually break the curse and be fully appreciated in his lifetime. You can download the track Jungle Drums, catch them on tour, and purchase the album at the label website.
