CAVES: Self-titled: 7”

Four songs of rolling, melodic punk from England. Caves have indie-influenced guitar breaks, female vocals, and whoah-oh hooks. I wish they resisted the temptation to do the refrain one last time, but hey, that repetition does offer another chance to sing along. This record is definitely a winner and should be checked out, especially if you like The Soviettes or Lemuria.
