Mp3 of the Week: Sam Cave

Best known as the guitarist and songwriter behind the celebrated Boston punk bands the Trouble and the Explosion, Sam Cave has of late been holed up in Brooklyn and Toronto, dabbling in acting and writing his first solo album. He's also produced some demos for Steer Clear and Dave Robertson, and has started a new label, Last Supper, that will be putting out a Josh English solo EP and a Get High discography. Normally we'd wait for him to get in an actual studio, but his home demos sound too damn good not to share. Listen past the lo-fi recording and “Bring Me to the Gun” evokes rock-n-roll the way the first Foo Fighters album framed it: hardcore on an extreme pop kick. In that sense it's less like his street-punk side project the Tonsils and more like his post-Explosion band Mermaid, the Quicksand-y trio he formed with Six Going On Seven's Josh English and the Trouble's Mike Hendrick. Cave's solo debut album Faces of Death will be out later this year. Enjoy....
