The Cave Singers’ debut album, Invitation Songs, is certainly steeped in spirit. From the haunted house where the band lived, practiced, and wrote much of the album, to the transcendental vibe that permeates many of their numbers, spirit and spirituality are omnipresent. On the video for “Dancing on Their Graves,” a different kind of spirituality is featured, and it comes from the fringes of Christianity where rapturous revivals and snake handling mix with scripture. Although this is neither the haunting nor meditative type of spirit I had first associated with The Cave Singers, the old black and white footage that is almost cult-ish in nature, serves “Dancing On Our Graves” quite well.
