If you like messed up folk music you might like Cages. Noisy and haunting, this tape consists of five songs over forty minutes, all recorded live to a good sound quality from what I believe is two sets. Bjork springs to mind the most with Nola Ranallo's intense vocals, whilst Dave Bailey is at the helm making an array of noises. Track two is a highlight, as Nola accentuates over simple ambience, though it goes on for too long, especially when she starts shrieking. This is sort of the pattern from then on - some neat ideas overdone. They end on a high though, with the five minute 'I Saw The Light'; gentle ambience and soft vocals build up well but at last it is kept simple and effective.
