The Cave Singers: Welcome Joy
Buy! - (Matador)
This Seattle trio’s 2nd album is a giant step beyond their promising 2007 debut Invitation Songs. Brighter, more fully realized production better highlights the band’s evolving sound, which ranges here from blissful ballads propelled by gentle acoustic finger-picking and lit up with pastoral harmonies to classic-sounding rockers that evoke Creedence and Led Zep. While the debut’s haunting sound was ideal for the dark, rainy days of a Northwest winter, Welcome Joy’s brighter sound and more hopeful lyrics are perfect for summer’s long sunny days. 7/28/2009 - Don Yates
