Book Of Caverns are a stunning band from Edmonton, Canada. After a demo and two splits, the band finally released their debut full-length Homes earlier this year.
Compared to the previous releases and songs, Book Of Caverns managed to improve and fine-tune their sound. Homes comes with 8 songs that clock in at 34 minutes in total. To put it in simple words, Book of Caverns play a mix of beautiful post-rock melodies and emotive-driven punk. The result is honest, beautiful, intimate and gut-wrenching music. Andrew Benson’s vocals switch from aggressive to utterly heartfelt and this gives the final touch to the sophisticated, textured and interlacing instrumental work. My favourite songs are Names & Numbers, Hold Tight and Champion City. I think these three songs represent best what Book Of Caverns sound like. Homes is definitely in my top 5 albums of 2013 and I’m looking forward to their split 7″ with Coma Regalia that’s out in August (?).
Homes was released by Clue#2 Records. It comes in a fold-over cover and with a lyrics booklet. The record was pressed on maroon vinyl. I have no idea about other colourways or quanitities.
