Cave is a psychedelic drone band based in Chicago, Illinois consisting of keyboardist Rotten Milk, guitarist/organist Cooper Crain, bassist Dan Browning and drummer Rex McMurry. The band was formed in Columbia, Missouri in 2006, and has released two full-length albums, Psychic Psummer (2009) and Hunt Like Devil/Jamz (2008), and an EP on Drag City Records. Cave played the Pitchfork Music Festival in 2010. Cave was formed in 2006 as an informal collaborative project by Columbia, Missouri friends Cooper Crain, Dan Browning, and Rex McMurry, with Chicago native Rotten Milk. At the time, Crain and McMurry were also members of the now-defunct Missouri band Warhammer 48K. When Warhammer disbanded in 2008 the four began seriously writing and recording music together.
In 2008 Cave released their first full-length album Hunt Like Devil/Jamz on Permanent Records. The following year they released another album on Important Records, Psychic Psummer, which received a positive review from Pitchfork Media. In 2010 they released an EP on Drag City Records, Pure Moods, which was reviewed favorably by Pop Matters and garnered mixed reviews from Tiny Mix Tapes and Pitchfork.
Cave are considered part of the "Columbia Diaspora", a group bands with members from Columbia, Missouri who now reside in Chicago that includes Mahjongg and Lazer Crystal.
Cooper Crain has released material from his solo project Bitchin' Bajas on Permanent Records and works with other Chicago bands as an analog recording engineer.
Believers is the long standing, ever-gestating brainchild of Tyler and Wesley Powell. Interweaving careful melodies, driving bass riffs, and subtle samples over a rhythm-heavy, double-drummer backbone, their music has an undying love of pop at its core. Choosing to collaboratively pursue this end initially in 2009, they changed their lives and moved in together to do so. After amassing a collection of sapling songs but without a band, the fruits of their labor proved somewhat abstract. So, putting that endeavor to sleep for the moment, they parted ways. After a year of false starts on either side of the Atlantic, they finally overcame the fears of their pursuit and reunited in the heart of the Heartland [Columbia, Missouri] two years ago to continue to do what they set out to do. Recruiting two drummers and a bassist cousin to realize their work, Believers became a real band. They've been playing weekend tours and, for the majority of last year, have scraped together time outside of menial work to finish their first release. Bent on realizing the thing in a do-it-themselves fashion, they recorded, produced, and mixed the thing on their own. It's taken some time, but the fruits of their labor have finally been made concrete and pressed to vinyl []. They/we hope to god/gods/void you enjoy it. Maybe they'll/we'll see you soon.
