I think it's safe to say that after hearing "The Great Pan Is Dead," the first single from Cold Cave's forthcoming album, Cherish The Light Years (due out on Matador Records on April 5th), they instantly became my obsession. Hell, I was already hooked when I heard Love Comes Close, but with "The Great Pan..." they turned everything up to 11-- industrialized guitars, New Wave synths, and gothy vocals. Now, I have the privilege of sharing Cherish The Light Years for all to take a listen. It's dark, it's dancey, and yes, it's awesome. It's got elements of everything thing I love-- Depeche Mode, New Order, The Cure, and Nine Inch Nails all wrapped into one. It should come as no surprise that this album will soon be a staple during my DJ gigs. Clearly a front-runner for my favorite of 2011.
Enough chatter, just listen:
