The Cave Singers Lyrics The second album from Seattle's CAVE SINGERS is a gorgeous, rich folky stew hitting musical touchstones from Led Zeppelin III (think Bron Yr Aur Stomp) to Iron and Wine, CCR, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and Will Oldham. Welcome Joy 】【 2009-08-18 】. Album songs: . ummer Light.

Welcome Joy features special guest appearances by Amber Webber (Black Mountain and Lightning Dust) and Ashley Webber (Lightning Dust), and bonus track Oh Child is crushingly lovely, and worth seeking. Welcome Joy (Bonus Track Version) The Cave Singers. Certainly to the relief of many who discovered the beauty of Cave Singers on 2007’s Invitation Songs, Welcome Joy finds the band staying the course, continuing to make spare, folk-inspired pop music. Though a slightly narcoticized ‘70s vibe is being channeled here, it’s more vintage Fleetwood Mac than, say, Vanilla Fudge, and the finger-picked guitars and the raspy, pinched vocals of Pete Quirk will also appeal to fans of Bon Iver and José Gonzalez (not to mention the Velvet Underground).

Pete Quirk, the frontman of Seattle-based ‘post-folk’ trio The Cave Singers, who formed from the remnants of Pretty Girls Make Graves, knows how to do a mean Bob Dylan. He does the full range from syphilitic tramp sitting on a tumble dryer to bleating sheep in a haunted abattoir via brain injury victim trying to sing with ball bearings in his mouth. It’s a shame that Quirk’s quirky vibrato is so prominent as it ruins an album that otherwise sits somewhere between untroublesome and mildly enjoyable

TITLE added to MP3 cart. Exclusive Prime pricing. If you have heard their first album, "Invitation Songs," then you know how simple yet memorable their songs can be. This album is more coherent thematically and probably as a result is not as catchy on the first listen. But after a couple of times through, individual songs start to stand out and the development, while more subtle, is overall more satisfying. If you like Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, and the rest of the bigger lights of the alt/indie/folk genre, you'll probably love The Cave Singers.

I first heard the Cave Singers in Neumo’s, a small, sweaty bar in Seattle. The in-house DJ was spinning in anticipation of a gut-busting rock 'n' roll powerhouse out of Detroit. As the crowd continued to grow, the DJ kept the blood flowing with some pretty meaty selections. Then, as if in one of those grand, Hollywood moments of clarity, he introduced me to the Cave Singers. The album doesn’t just feature prolific harmonies; the record is one massive, joyous harmony. That back porch must be one expansive, fruitful place to work. But for the time being, the Cave Singers ought to be proud of Welcome Joy. It’ll be classified as a folk record, simply because of its fondness for simple acoustics. Yet here’s a thought, and this might be as good a compliment as I can offer Welcome Joy.
