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)"
