Listen / Download: Cave Needles – “Ghost Beach”
by Chad Jewett
Cave Needles, an expansive, tough-to-define indie quartet from Grand Rapids Michigan, whimsically describe themselves as “psychedelic beach rock.” Perhaps the band, whose members include You Blew It! alumni, have the adjacent Lake Michigan in mind. Certainly the band is representative of a certain midwestern tradition of shimmery, dreamy emo, the kind of thing you might associate with Appleseed Cast (Lawrence, Kansas), along with the more coastal star-gazing of Real Estate or Prawn. “Ghost Beach”, our second listen from the band’s upcoming self-titled full-length, offers languid, bleary-eyed mood-pop, hazy and evocative of its title.
