Caveman: Artist You Should Know

Written by

Part of the new wave of folky Urban Americana that includes bands like Grizzly Bear, Local Natives, and Fleet Foxes, Caveman are trafficking in the kind of melodic-harmonic atmospherics that sound like a desert’s starry night sky. Their twist however is their knack for letting the atmospheric noodling go deep. So every once in awhile, that night sky’s got an array of satellites and/or other random unidentified flying objects.

They atypically garnered attention because a bartender friend of theirs simply kept playing a cd of their demos at a bar in their Brooklyn neighborhood.  They then started playing more shows locally, and have since become blog darlings on the strength of a  steady number of track releases and road testing their live show like crazy. They’ve just released their first LP “Coco Beware” (named I assume after this guy.)

These guys are gonna play a bunch of CMJ showcases next week and their aforementioned new album has a number of really sweet sweet shooting stars…like “Thankful.”
