‘Cherish The Light Years’ is the beloved second album from Cold Cave that was released in 2010 by Matador Records and has been out of print until now. Recorded at Electric Lady and DFA’s Plantain Studios in NYC, ‘Cherish The Light Years’ emboldened and elevated the band’s previous lo-fi indie and industrial hybrid songs to dark stadium synthpop. The record features the songs ‘Confetti’, ‘The Great Pan Is Dead‘, ‘Underworld USA’, ‘Villains Of The Moon’ and more, and is an album of love, regret, triumph and failure and is finally available again for its 10 year anniversary.
Pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, this is the first time ‘Cherish The Light Years’ has ever been available on coloured vinyl. This special edition also includes the unreleased track Believe In My Blood and includes a new cover photo from the original cover shoot by Sebastian Mlynarski.
