Hot off their recent appearance at Pop Montreal this fall, Saskatoon lo-fi bedroom popsters Caves are preparing to release a new EP on local record/tape label Leaning Trees. The EP, entitled Secretly Dead is comprised of five tracks and will see physical release on a limited-edition green cassette tape. Though the project has become a full-band unit, these are tracks recorded by Caves mastermind Peter Grier in his parent’s bedroom back in 2010 but are just now seeing the light of day. Grier used only analog methods, recording the EP to a cassette 4-track without any computers, synthesizers or samplers.
Leaning Trees has made the first edition of 50 hand-stamped professionally duplicated cassettes available for pre-order, so visit them here to get your copy. To check out the songs before you buy, see them all streaming via Leaning Trees’ Soundcloud:
