Alas, I see this show is sold out, so if you don’t already have tickets, sorry. And if you do, have a great time. As I inadvertently never reviewed Caveman’s excellent debut album when it first came out last year on their own Magic Man! Records (it’s since been re-released on Fat Possum), I’ll let this serve as a little reminder to check them out…
Caveman’s percussion may sound tribal and primitive (in all the best ways), but when the guitar and synth kicks in on their debut album CoCo Beware, they can suddenly sound like a transmission from outer space. The four-part harmonies provide a heavenly counterpoint to the thickly applied rhythm and lush moodiness – sort of a ‘pop ritualism.’ “A Country’s King of Dreams and “Vampirer” are especially mystical. They’ll be bringing this curious and intriguing dichotomy to the Paradise in Boston Friday night, when they open up for one of our favorite indie rock bands from Boise, Built To Spill. And oh yes, one of their songs, “My Time,” was used for an “I Love NY” TV ad. How cool is that?
