9/10 Brian Staff review, 29 October 2009
Cold Wave electro prodigies Cold Cave aka Wesley Eisold (& friends) has his debut LP proper 'Love Comes Close' fully released on Matador this week. I heard a 7" single on Hospital months back and just adored the dark, blurred lo-fi fog obscuring these darkly emotive electro pop gems. Once again the "Dutch" sound of 1982 is relevant & fresh again. Cold Cave's songs owe as much to the bleak beauty of Factory records as they do the sad analogue chords of Trumpett records of Holland (check out Eurolegends such as The Actor & Ende Shneafliet), music that is both beautifully evocative and icily nihilistic. The early New Order influence is inescapable on the title track, but doesn't seem typical of much of the album. There's quite a varied palette of electronic sounds used throughout, the template is really diverse, ranging from the nonchalant, detached synth fuzz of 'Life Magazine' with its echoed female vocal & looming bassline to the crisp, classic electro of 'The Laurels of Erotomania' - all cascading synths, pristine 4/4 beat & sulky, maudlin vocals. God, this guy knows how to write a tune! He's a bit of a goth too but I've always thought that this much maligned genre harboured some cracking, underappreciated songs. 'Heaven Was Full' is Interpol meets Depeche Mode skating sexily along on Kate Bush's mid 80's drums...... I can really see what the fuss is about now, nothing hugely new but there's some quality ideas fused together here to create a fresh dynamic take on simple old ingredients. Excellent stuff!!!
