More Info

Caudal is a new trio featuring Aidan Baker (CA Nadja, Whisper Room, ARC) on guitar, Gareth Sweeney (IE Gout) on bass, and Felipe Salazar (CO Muerte En Pereira) on drums. Bakers multi-layered, heavily affected guitar overlays Sweeney and Salazars driving, propulsive rhythm section creating music equally influenced by krautrock, post-punk, and spacerock.

The Animal: European Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus citellus)

Caudal have decided to dedicate their release to the European ground squirrel (German: Ziesel). All profits will be donated to support the protection efforts of the Austrian Union for Nature Preservation (homepage only available in German sorry for that!).

The European ground squirrel has very specific habitat requirements. It needs short turf in order to dig its tunnel system. It finds this on the steppes and in pasture, in dry banks, on sports fields, parks and lawns. These conditions are lost when changes in agricultural practice convert grassland into arable land and forest, or grazing ceases and the grass grows coarse and scrub-land develops. Over the last ten years, the population has therefore diminished by more than 30%." [label info]
