Cave Curse (LP Release)
Cave Curse (LP Release)
Darkwave synth-punk solo project turned duo from Madison, WI. Cave Curse was originally started as an outlet for Bobby Hussy (The Hussy, Fire Retarded, TIT) to release solo synth-pop recordings with no intentions of ever performing the songs live. The debut 7” was released in 2015 on Volar Records and featured Bobby playing all the instruments himself for the first time in his career. In early 2016 Cave Curse became a two-piece when Bobby asked recent Madison transplant and all around solid dude, Will Gunnerson to play drums for the project. Gunnerson is most known for his work as half of Jabberjosh, a heavy bass and drum duo from Lawrence, Kansas. The band, which featured Will’s brother Sam on bass and vocals, quickly gained a reputation in the Midwest underground for their unique mix of punk, sludge and noise elements. Gunnerson’s innovative and dynamic live drumming has morphed Cave Curse into an entirely new punk venture. Bobby Hussy’s walls of synth sonics and dramatic vocals are now backed by Gunnerson’s punchy, hard hitting and often times completely dancey rhythms. The band is currently working on their debut LP as the two-piece. This show will celebrate the release of a brand new Cave Curse EP on cassette format (with download). The tape will be available for the first time at this show through Madison’s finest tape label, Rare Plant! Only 40 cassettes will be made.
The Cult of Lip
The Cult of Lip
“…The Cult of Lip showcase woozy guitars, jittery rhythms, and distant vocals dripping in effects. The closer “Fog” brought to mind a more punk My Bloody Valentine…I’m hesitant to use the term “psychedelic” because there’s too much nervous energy contained within these five songs, but that feeling is definitely there. This is both confounding and addicting…and a great record.”

“Flying saucer indie with gliding guitars and reverb-y vocals which is still punk enough to cram 5 tracks onto a 7″…Sounds dazed as hell, but still focused enough to tear through asteroids at breakneck speed. Every song tries out different warped guitar effects, with the B-side heading closer to MBV braintwisting. Super refreshing to hear something this wacked out and spacey but also incredibly energetic…”
