July 4, 2015. Fireworks pop as night falls; downtown St. Louis lights up, and its sky fills with a barrage of colors.
St. Louis' CaveofswordS have a hypnotic new album, "Sigils," set to be released and this exclusive live performance indicates it will be another dark journey of sound.
What first impresses on "Blameless," the new single by St. Louis-based electronic-music group CaveofswordS, is simply the melody: the way it flows in and out and around and through the host of percussive and synthetic textures. The melody is carried by Sunyatta McDermott's seraphic voice, but it's also absolutely inseparable from each musical element. In short: "Blameless" is glorious.
Cicero's on the Loop played host to an eclectic night of local music on Friday, February 1.
