Cold Cave, the project of Wes Eisold, who had got his training in the
Ye Olde Maids documented on
God Blesses Us Mother Dresses Us (Art Fag, 2009),
were accomplished impersonators of synth-pop of the 1980s (New
Order, Depeche Mode, etc):
Sex Ads off Coma Potion (2008),
the single The Trees Grew Emotions And Died (2008),
Love Comes Close and Theme From Tomorrowland
off the EP Death Comes Close (Heart Worm, 2009),
Love Comes Close off the EP Etsel And Ruby (What's Your Rupture, 2009).
Some of these and new songs were included on the first album,
Love Comes Close (Heart Worm, 2009), notably the carillon-like and
jig-like Life Magazine.
Cremations (Hospital, 2009) is a compilation.
Cherish The Light Years (Matador, 2011) was a shameless sellout,
frequently aping New Order's android ballets
(Underworld USA, Icons of Summer, Villains Of The Moon).
Some of the songs sound like covers of the hits of that era, like
Catacombs ("inspired" by Modern English's I Melt with You).
Little touches of modernity in
Alchemy and You and Racing Around the Church feel revolutionary
in such a monument to dejavu, and the
operatic overwrought industrial frenzy of The Great Pan Is Dead feels
like hardcore by comparison with the crooning excesses of the ballads.
