The Cave Singers spend a good deal of time beyond the darkened edges of Seattle, in the mist and mystic, among the wolves and redwoods. And their songs, at least on record, have always been like beautiful, faded grayscale photos of this hinterland. Now, these photos are injected with hot blood and technicolor, a ferocity and bite we've yet to see from the band. No Witch is a new found sheen to the aura that made The Cave Singers' music so special to begin with.

The Cave Singers are what most people consider some sort of folk music. I would consider them psychedelic folk rock. They do have acoustic numbers, but they use various instruments including (per the booklet): Foot Jawn, Upright Bass, Alto Flute, Violin and Viola, and Keys & Bone. The lead singer has a unique voice that matches their style of music exceptionally well.

In regards to the album, No Witch is consistent to their previous releases in that it is a harmonious and enjoyable listen. Each song delivers a unique experience. I'm impressed they take such a open approach with their instrumentation and arrangements. I especially enjoy the opening song "Gifts and the Raft" along with "Outer Realms", "Haller Lake", and "Clever Creatures".

Guitarist Derek Fudesco casts a guitar-god spell on a number of tracks with his hypnotic open picking style. Singer Pete Quirk (who looks a lot like actor Michael Jeter in a trucker's cap and saggy jeans onstage) channels Mick Jagger as he sings, wails, howls, and talks with his appealingly fuzzy voice through cryptic lyrics. Drummer Marty Lund is the point that holds this power triangle together, galloping on solid beats down the center of each song while his band mates levitate like kites on either side of him.

This is one of those albums where repeated listens reveal that every track is worth your attention, but if I could only take a few songs away from this visit to The Cave Singer's cave they would probably be "Gifts and the Raft," "Swim Club," and "Haller Lake" - the latter of which features sing-speak lyrics, warm revolving guitar picking to drown in, and a melodica.

I just can't get enough of it. Electrifying.
