Pistols at Dawn by Cavedwellers Imagine a world where a poorly picked word Would send gentlemen to a frenzy The rush to react, to demand satisfaction, Blood redder than Cardinal Arinze Say what you dare, but you learn to be careful Preserving yourself for the future ‘Cause it sure ain’t nice to pay...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

Mandibles - As a relative polyrhythm newcomer and without a beat to focus on, I struggled to figure out what exactly you were doing rhythmically in this song, so I'd love to know if you care to share any extra info!

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

Cavedwellers have written a little love letter to the beats and freaks of an Italian neighborhood in the shadows of San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill, where poets, pranksters and pigeons left their mark over the years.
