Topshelf and Bridge Nine Records Co-Releasing Split from Caravels and Octaves on January 20; Octaves Track/Video Now Streaming

Topshelf and Bridge Nine Records will co-release a split from Las Vegas, NV’s Caravels and Baltimore, MD’s Octaves on January 20.

The 4-song split will be available on vinyl and digital formats and features two new tracks from each band.

As a preview, Octaves have premiered a brand new music video for their track “Tom Petty Cash”, which appears on their side of the split, and you can watch that now on YouTube.

Caravels follow up their pensive 2013 full-length, Lacuna, with two more tracks of earthy, enveloping post-hardcore, all effects pedals and clouded brooding. Their two songs roll along tense faultlines with shouted lyrics that exert impossibly firm control over its metaphorical imagery and personality deconstructions. The band will be premiering these shortly before the release in January. The band has toured and played shows with the likes of Touche Amore, Seahaven, The Jazz June, and Drug Church.

Octaves formed in a warehouse in West Baltimore in the Fall of 2008, and released their B9 debut Which Way The Wind Blows in April 2013. The band has since toured the USA with the likes of HORSE the Band, Shai Hulud, and countless others in support of this release. These two new EP tracks mark the first new music since their debut, with more to come soon.

Track Listing:


1. Moody Miles
