Cherish The Light Years it´s been those albums that made me believe in nowadays music again. It´s Cold Cave flag album. If you want to listen to good, well made, well produced new wave electro music, I sincerely recommend this. A trip to cold and cool unknown feelings that had been inside you all of this time. Its fresh rhythms remind us to those days when Sisters of Mercy started to create a new music wave. This is Cold Cave welcome to this new era of new wave music. Responder Notifique-me 2 Helpful.
Album Cherish the Light Years. The Great Pan Is Dead Lyrics. Tell me when the world is ending You won't be there still pretending I was just someone you would love to love But never love. I know people without substance Will fill themselves with substances But then, honey child There was us There still is. I will come running Gunning through the years Hunting heart Crushing fear. I am still haunting Down the roads I know Of the hell that begs and burns Below. Their love laughs at locksmiths We're smashing through the windows Of delicate dream homes I feel so crowded alone. The empathy of breaking chains The sympathy in crashing waves Careful boy, caution girl I do not think we were meant for this world.
Cold Cave Cherish The Light Years. Creative inspiration springs forth from many sources and in the case of Cold Cave’s Wesley Eisold, his move to New York City birthed Cherish The Light Yearsâ€ the band’s latest effort. Opening with The Great Pan Is Dead, an ss-eardrum beat down, it is clear that Eisold is indeed inspired. His confidence is apparent in his lyrical choices and his overall delivery. The influence of 80’s bands abounds throughout the album. None more apparent than in Confetti from the opening guitar riffs and synths and even Eisold’s tone all of which have a Depeche Mode quality about it. There isn’t a bad track on the whole album. Cold Cave’s sophomore offering manages to be both a blast from the past, rife with retro 80’s sounds, and future forward sounding at the same time with its electro modern sensibilities.
Cold Cave began working on its third studio album and follow up to Cherish the Light Years tentatively titled Sunflower in 2013, and a release date in 2014 was originally anticipated. On what the potential sonic direction of the new album, Eisold said it would be a, "mix between some of the bigger sounds on Cherish and more minimal stuff I'm interested in now, like Suicide or 39 Clocks. It has changed in that it started as a solo project. I had different collaborators at times based on people who were in my life at different times. For the past five years, my partner Amy has been with me so it would be totally dishonest to say it’s a solo project at this point. She does so much for the band in terms of art direction, videos, stage production and more.
The band’s second album is an intoxicatingblend of belting tunes and utter insanity Wesley Eisold probably doesn’t consider ‘Cherish The Light . Yet Cold Cave’s second album is the first resurgence of 2010’s trend for music featuring noisy, jarring synths getting some traction in the mainstream (MIA, Sleigh Bells, Salem). It’s also a step away from the dismissively gloomy, broadly tuneful synthpop of ‘Love Comes Close’, CC’s 2009 debut; ‘Cheris. ’s opening song, ‘The Great Pan Is Dead’: a rudely maximalist assault with what sounds like about 15 drum machines overheating at once. Make no mistake: Cold Cave are if anything more ridiculous than before
Cold Cave - A Little Death To Laugh (2012). Black Asteroid - Thrust (2017). Black Asteroid - Black Moon (2016).
Cold Cave’s third album finds Wes Eisold at the peak, to date at least, of a steady trajectory into pop music. Rarely are things that straight, but in the case of Cold Cave, it seems they are. Prior to the project’s birth, Eisold made punk and hardcore in several bands, then, Cremations (the first CC album, 2009) was a solo war of static, ghosts and burnt out circuitry, melodies occasionally crying out from behind the cobwebs. Love Comes Close (released later in 2009, and recorded as either a three or a four-piece) was minimal, hook-driven synth-pop with a cheap, goths at the disco aesthetic,. Cherish the Light Years is an understandable move then, and in some ways a brave one, but it’s definitely Cold Cave’s weakest record to date.
Cherish the Light Years was released on April 5, 2011. The album was released by Matador Records on 12" vinyl, CD, and Digital formats.
