In the last six weeks, we have twice had the pleasure of seeing one of Brooklyn’s brightest new bands — each time supporting an nyctaper-favorite band. In August when Caveman opened for War On Drugs at Cameo Gallery, we were unfamiliar with the band. Their sound features prominent keyboards, which naturally draws comparison to 80s bands, but its the heavy rhythmic elements that align them with contemporaries like The Dodos and Local Natives. Following the Cameo show, Caveman played a sold-out CD release show for their debut album CoCo Beware at Mercury Lounge. We caught them again after the Mercury coming-out party, this time at the Beekman Beer Garden with The Hold Steady. Perhaps it was my imagination, but it seemed that in a month since the Cameo show, Caveman was playing tighter and with more confidence. “Old Friend”, which flows live from the instrumental “Vampirer” was a strong end of set number that features a driving beat and the sweet melancholy vocals of Matthew Iwanusa, and we are streaming it below.

I recorded the Cameo show in the same manner at the War On Drugs recording, with the Neumanns supplemented with a mono board feed. The Beekman show was recorded with the four-microphone rig directly in front of the soundboard cage. The sound quality of both sets is excellent. Enjoy!
