with Ealdor Bealu
Listening to Slow Caves, one is reminded that being sonically interesting doesn’t mean that a band must sacrifice having old fashioned hooks or pop sensibilities. Danish born brothers, Jakob and Oliver Mueller, provide the vocal and guitar backdrop for Slow Caves, a band (rounded out by childhood friends David Dugan – guitar/bass, and Jackson Lamperes – drums) who offer a relaxed and surf-y update on 80’s synth, 90’s jangle, and early aught’s indie rock. Formed in Ft. Collins, CO in 2014, Slow Caves quickly gained a reputation as a must-see local attraction. Soon the band was making an impression in Denver’s vibrant music scene, earning slots at tastemaker clubs such as The Hi Dive and Lost Lake Lounge. In 2015, the band showcased their music at SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York. Then in late 2016, the band signed with Cincinnati-based Old Flame Records (Cloud Nothings, Dead Confederate), performed at Boise’s lauded, Treefort Festival and Austins’ SXSW (March 2017), and released their Old Flame debut (Desert Minded-EP) on March 10, 2017. Since the release, the band has been touring all over North America and opened for bands such as DIIV, Cold War Kids, White Reaper, St. Lucia, Rooney, Cake and more.
Ealdor Bealu is a 4-piece heavy-psych band from Boise, ID formed in 2015. With a focus on shifting dynamics from the ambient to the massive and back again, their sound is both minimalist and maximalist with hints at the unknown core of our existence and the world beyond this reality. The band’s first offering DARK WATER AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN has drawn local, regional, and even international praise as a standout in the realms of the ambient psychedelic universe.
