ALBUM REVIEW by The Deli Magazine NYC -

"Just got out of a crappy relationship? Stop moping around! Everyone knows the best way to deal with hard times is to groove your way through it. This is what makes bands like Cave Days so necessary for broken hearts everywhere. Sure they complain about the limits of unconditional love in confessional tearjerkers like 'Unconditional,' but more often than not, they manage to transcend these problems with the lively and sweat-soaked 'Closer' and 'Kodachrome Beach.' Their latest self-titled EP is the sugar you take with the medicine.

Members Jonathan Murphy and Richard Thomas seem to have discovered the hidden formula behind emotional recovery: sun-soaked guitars, reverb-soaked harmonies, and tropical grooves. Whether shouting back at the pain with lo-fi drum machines (Beat Up Kids), or strumming through their mistakes in campfire duets like 'All Voices Just Noises,' the duo always brings an emotional lift to their complex experiences. Sometimes that's just what the doctor ordered. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)"

Track Name: Closer
A riverbed couldn’t hold us back
I was a brick but now i’m cement
beaver is building a home out of sticks and stones
bumble bee is moving to the city of milk and honey
i wish i could see the big picture
we’re sinking ships when we whisper
who makes mistakes like we do?
i cant help but love you
and in my head i wish i was dead
cause i see ghosts hiding under the bed
we're like skeletons that hide in the closet
you are closer to me
you are everything
you are closer to me
than the wind in the sails on my sea
i wish i could see the big picture
we’re sinking ships when we whisper
who makes mistakes like we do?
i cant help but love you
Track Name: Unconditional
I keep you in a box under my bed
My golden ring lies neatly in my hand
Two dimensional renditions of our love
I thought unconditional meant forever, forever
The last time that I saw you
Burnt pictures in my brain
Just a memory now
That keeps driving me insane, driving me insane
You still exist in a place I long to visit
But I can’t touch you now
I crossed the limit
I’ve seen kisses between owls, koala bear
Making love was something I saw there
The last time that I saw you
Burnt pictures in my brain
Just a memory now
That keeps driving me insane
The last time that I saw you
Burnt pictures in my brain
Just a memory now
That keeps driving me insane, driving me insane
Track Name: Beat Up Kids
I've been wondering why you act like you're dead inside
There's no hope for the beat up kids
Future as bright as the sun in my eyelids
Goodbye to the holidays 'cause Lord knows they were never meant to stay
I spend time with a friend of mine
Who says dying is just a way of being alive
And I've been thinking about this past year
How all my troubles sing whispers in my ear
I'll put my head underwater just so I cannot hear them
'Cause when they sing, it sounds like God descending
Track Name: All Voices Just Noises
In my life
I know I've made mistakes
And those I hide will only try to escape
This is my trial and that's my prison that awaits
All the rainfall is just teardrops in my lake
I'm writing you a letter
I'm gonna be better
It's gonna take time
Just say you'll wait
No sleep tonight
You know it beats me up somedays
The pictures I hide will always break down my gate
This is my trial and that's my prison that awaits
All the voices just noises in my cave
Track Name: Kodachrome Beach
I met a girl from San Francisco
Her favorite colors were teal and purple
We spent a day at the beach eating ice cream and strawberries
That's how I know I'll never let her go
As the moon revealed itself
She let her golden hair down
And I felt hypnotized by the colors in her eyes
