Why “Caveman”? Why not “Primordial,” or “Palaeolithic,” or “Troglodyte,” or “Aborigine”? Never mind; all that matters is that their music is luxuriously primative, dreamy space pop with 4-part harmonies, little blasts of cosmic madness, and some hypnotic tribal drumming.
Since coming together at the start of 2010, Caveman have already toured with some impressive bands – Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic, Cursive, Wye Oak and Yuck.
To celebrate their debut album, CoCo Beware (digital release 9/13; CD and vinyl on 11/15), they’re on tour with The War On Drugs, and will be decending on The Brighton Music Hall on Sunday night to caress and then melt your ears for a little while.
If you’re in New York next month, you can celebrate the release at the Mercury Lounge on September 15th.
The War On Drugs are headlining the show, and they are similarly psychedelic, so if you’re looking to go on a little trip Sunday night, and you’re not planning on checking out this folk singer who’s playing at the House of Blues (whose name slips my mind), this may well be the show for you. The War On Drugs have a new album just out, Slave Ambient.
Fellow space travelers Porcelain Raft open up the evening.
