Album Notes
Since Family Cave formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2003, original members Julio Montero and Jason Shine cross paths serendipitously in Los Angeles in 2010 and they reform in the west coast, a fitting context for the lurid sweeps of rejuvenation and introspection in the band’s long-awaited EP release “Direction”. On the opening track “Place for Me”, Shine sings eloquently about the angst that outliers bear, conflicted between society’s conventions and fear, taking on “the pond that lays” before all of us. But, the soothingly glorious vocal harmonies of the chorus assure listeners of the beauty of the road less taken. However, Family Cave’s mature observations are not merely confined to the lyrics. In “All the Places”, there’s a well-crafted palette of tropical guitar licks, punctuated by tender vibes (courtesy of the refreshing addition of Kristina Thoergesen on keyboards and background vocals into the current lineup) that surprises midway through the song via a banjo that not only shows the band’s discipline; the dynamic sound illustrates an eagerness to take risks. Family Cave brings all its strengths to the fore on the title track, most notably for its wide range of styles from stomping rhythms, folk ditties, to the more exploratory sections of lush guitar and vocal atmospherics reminiscent of Radiohead’s early ballads. - Mundo Rivera
