    It might still be restrained, and it still sounds fragilely beautiful, but even when it just misses this album will stir you up in all the right ways.

    Third, and finest, brew of Seattle trio's fever-folk moonshine. [March 2011, p. 99]

    Three albums in, they haven't yet – but I trust The Cave Singers – I think their next might be the one.

    As these descriptions should suggest, none of the songs on No Witch grabs you on its own as a standout piece of songwriting. It's less that the instrumentation and tones are structural veneers concealing merely passable songs and more that the record is just one extended riff on a host of roots music styles.

    Unfortunately with No Witch, there just isn't enough excitement to hold the listener's attention for long. And while the group is to be commended for their artistic efforts, it could benefit from a more aggressive fusion of sounds on its next album.

    Huddling together former members of the erstwhile Pretty Girls Make Graves, Seattle's Cave Singers have fashioned a deeply masculine disc in No Witch, the trio's third LP and first for Jagjaguwar.

    This is a band that shows some good potential and they are pretty decent at their playing. While this is a green score, it's more like barelyThis is a band that shows some good potential and they are pretty decent at their playing. While this is a green score, it's more like barely above average; the songs wear out their welcome too quickly, the mix of folk, blues, and rock is executed not too well, and it just feels too long for its own good. The band is interesting though and when they make good music, the music is pretty damn good. Hopefully future outputs will be much better than this. Full Review »
