Go to the Cave In website  Cave In - Moons Of Jupiter & Lost In The Air / Lift Off [Hydra Head - 2002]

Cave In is currently one of my favourite rock acts. The four piece, who attracted a lot of attention with their '00 release Jupiter seems to be doing something right. In this article I will review two 'limited' releases, namely the EP Moons Of Jupiter, which was released for the fans on the 2000-2001 US tour and the recently released two song single Lost In The Air / Lift Off (sleeve photo).

Moons Of Jupiter includes a remix of the song "Jupiter" and piano versions from 3 other Jupiter (the album) songs, which were done by Stephen Brodsky (vocals, guitar, keyboards) on 4-track. The piano was recorded at Brookline High School, where Stephen had a painting job over the summer and took time on a lunch break to record these songs. The song "Jupiter" sounds better because of the new mix, but even without it, the song would still be great. The most interesting part on the EP are the piano versions. Even if they were only recorded on 4-track, without guitars and drums, these songs still stand strong, especially "Big Riff" and "New Moon". The latter is my favourite, since it sounds so sad and beautiful at the same time. This track alone is worth the money you paid for the EP.

With the recently released untitled single, Cave In presents us two new songs as an appetizer for their next album. "Lost In The Air" and "Lift Off" are two tracks who could easily fit on Jupiter. Both are quite catchy, but still have the proggy space-rock feeling. The songs should be a nice indication of what we can expect in the future from this talented band.

So if you run across these two Cave In releases, be sure to pick them up. "Lost In The Air / Lift Off" is still available through most good CD stores. "Moons Of Jupiter" might be a little bit harder to get. Both releases are limited to 3000 pieces.
