SUMMERSONIC: CAVE, Wume

Drag City recording artists and critical darlings CAVE have been making waves in Chicago for the past few years. Their music is decidedly psychedelic, evoking the motorik styles of Krautrock. Their recent performance on the back of a flatbed truck was named "Best Drag City Promotion" by the Chicago Reader. Their newest release, Neverendless, has received rave reviews and is available in stores and from the label.

Wume is the electronics/drums duo of Albert Shatz (Bird Names) and April Camlin. Their lush synth sound falls in a psychedelic genre similar to CAVE's, but with a more cosmic, dreamy vibe. Their cassette release Distance is available from Catholic Tapes.
