Wednesday, September 6, 2006 9:33 PM PT / 4,234 views
Official press release: On his third full-length solo release (his first for Hydra Head Records), Cave In vocalist/guitarist Stephen Brodsky parlays his formidable song-writing chops and solid gold power-pop sensibilities into a sparkling sea of shimmering chords, glorious vocal harmonies and infectious acoustic ditties. With the expert musical assistance of Scissorfight's Kevin J. Strongbow (drums) and Thee Electric Bastards mastermind Johnny Northrup (bass/Casio SK-1), Stephen Brodsky's Octave Museum is all gorgeousness and gorgeousity, the kind of album that makes you wanna sing along to your old Elvis Costello records and cry yourself to sleep thinking about Elliot Smith. And, like, Paul McCartney. In Brian Wilson's sandbox. In outer space. Here's the track listing: 01. Voice Electric (4:21) 02. Sentimental Case (3:40) 03. Kid Defender (4:00) 04. Prove Myself (3:34) 05. Bluebell (2:00) 06. Red Headed Butterflies (4:57) 07. Kill the Queen (4:04) 08. Swingin' in the Sky (2:37) 09. Spirals in Her Eyes (3:45) 10. Ploo (2:32) Titled "Octave Museum," the effort will hit stores on November 7th.

i fcking love his records.


chrisdrumsx 9/7/2006 2:25:03 AM

most of these are songs from his bands he's in. still worthy of checking out..one of the greatest songwriters today.

i'd rather listen to Jackie Chan's solo album.


zampano 9/7/2006 4:18:01 AM

I bought his split with Ramona Cordova. It wasn't very good. What is it with metal guys and their ambient/acoustic side projects? You don't have to prove anything to anyone buddy - you're in Cave In.

"I'd rather listen to Jackie Chan's solo album." AHAHAHAHAHA... Cmon man, open your heart to Simon. Just let him in man..let him in.....just let him in..... *The sound of waves crashing on the beach echos in the background*


Connoisseur 9/7/2006 6:13:11 AM

Hell muthafckin' yeah *BRO-dski.


MarginError 9/7/2006 6:25:11 AM

yeah, that split with Ramona was terrible. He has a few good solo tracks here and there, but his albums just sit there on my shelf. I doubt I'll even buy this one.


were_all_dicked 9/7/2006 7:09:52 AM

I'm pretty stoked on this


taintcore 9/7/2006 7:49:03 AM

Wilson>Smith>Costello>Brodsky>McCartney


Mike 9/7/2006 9:22:38 AM

Brodsky is a better songwriter than McCartney?!?!?! WTF!!!!


snes 9/7/2006 9:51:33 AM

metal guys doing acoustic projects always=lolz. remember 'just because you can doesn't mean you should'


no_cool_names_left 9/7/2006 10:28:30 AM

LOL @ elliot smith > elvis costello.


picturesofme 9/7/2006 10:52:34 AM

"Brodsky is a better songwriter than McCartney?!?!?! WTF!!!!"...man, there are thousands of songwriters better than McCartney, despite what your dad told you.


Mike 9/7/2006 11:56:15 AM

No shit cool guy but Brodsky isnt one of them. P.S. my dad is a beach boys guy not the beatles.


Luke_Headwalker 9/7/2006 12:13:03 PM

I'm psyched for this. Brodsky rules and so does Cave In.


peasentmagic 9/7/2006 12:15:43 PM

"metal guys doing ambient/acoustic side projects?" it shouldn't have to be stated that cave in have not been a metal band for a LONG time.


BadAxe 9/7/2006 1:35:19 PM

This should be nice and boring.


cryptic_slaughter 9/7/2006 7:57:48 PM

I can't wait never to listen to this. awesome


wizardsbeard 9/8/2006 7:13:23 AM

Stephen Brodsky is awesome, but "Octave Musuem" is a stupid title.


stolenbirds 9/9/2006 12:44:09 PM

i had an album of his called 'ole sunday' which was ok, but nothing spectacular. i think his melodies just sound so much better with a wall of distorted reverb behind them.
