A glimpse into Cold Cave's darkness: the latest incarnation of Wesley Eisold's solo music project, comprising of himself, mainly on vocal duties, and Amy Lee on synthesizers, made a stop at the fittingly named Death Disco club for the band's Athens live debut.
As we're waiting for Cold Cave's third album, we had the opportunity to enjoy some of the band's older material from "Love Comes Close" ("Heaven Was Full", "Youth and Lust") and "Cherish the Light Years" ("Confetti", "Underworld USA"), as well as some of their newer singles ("A Little Death to Laugh", "God Made The World", "Black Boots").
Eisold gave a compelling performance, roaming around the stage, dancing with his mike stand and only occasionally adding a touch to the synthesizer as it was Amy Lee's duty to handle the controls of the Cold Cave spaceship. Its 70-minute journey through the cold, dark void of electro-space turned out to be a highly enjoyable one. Credit has to go also to Mechanimal who opened the show with a strong 30-minute set of like-minded electronic menace that began with their latest single, "Obscure", which you can check out here.
