With From Autumn to Ashes, Everytime I Die and Funeral for a Friend
This year has seen a boon for long-suffering fans, with the release of live Led Zeppelin material and new songs from My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields. But as wonderful as it is to hear from such great artists again, their re-emergences come with the bittersweet realization that we'll never see these larger-than-life heroes onstage again. Fortunately, we can still catch Cave In. Though the Boston four-piece has not yet achieved legend status, damn if it doesn't recall both Zep's majestic hammer-dropping and Valentine's hypnotic haze. The band's new album, Antenna, made the long list for this year's Short List prize, so go see Cave In now, before the size of the venues it plays starts catching up with the scope of its sound.
