I wanted to meet you in the rain/but you never showed/I've waited for most of the day/I hope that you know. This rather passive-aggressive end to a chorus line stands in shrill contrast to the sound of this delightful EP. On Meet You, The Cavalcade play calm, bittersweet little songs (generally a bit more bitter than sweet, but not begrudged at all) that are bound to conquer your thoughts and feelings, there is just no resistance. The jangly guitar and wonderfully imperfect vocals are the centerpoint but an important part of the musical experience is the chemistry between those and the limited keyboard touch-ups. It's over before you know it and you will most likely directly be tempted to listen to it again. Do it. It's no use fighting; surrender is not a choice, it's a given. Also warmly recommended to folkies.

The Cavalcade are signed to (among others) the wonderful Cloudberry Records with which I seem to share a lot of values in life.
