Freeload: Ye Olde Maids, “Cocoa Cherubs” + “Candy Cigarettes on Fire”



After Schnipper wrote about the supremely slept on Cold Cave 12-inch recently, we ended up tracking down a compilation of previously released tracks from various 7-inches and stuff like that. There are definitely moments where Cold Cave's gothy lo-fi drum machine tick and guitar haze shine through, but it's also full of abrasive noise. Not unexpected, but not exactly what we were expecting either. To confuse matters a little more, Wes Eisold of Cold Cave, has a solo project called Ye Olde Maids. He makes music that sounds a lot like that first Cold Cave 12-inch, which means that Ye Olde Maids makes the music we assumed Cold Cave made in the first place. So when the new Cold Cave album comes around we'll finally be able to settle once and for all who sounds more like...themselves? We don't even know anymore.
