Caveman has come a long way very quickly since we first saw them 18 months ago as an opening band at Cameo Gallery. At that show, opening for fellow quick-climbers The War On Drugs, it was fairly obvious that Caveman would be going places. A couple of months later they were playing larger gigs, and when their debut CoCo Beware was picked up by Fat Possum Records, the band went national. This month, the band released their anticipated follow-up to CoCo, a self-titled second album that retains the band keen sense of melody and 80s-influenced pop while taking the next step. Caveman is a more mature and more consistently excellent album — just exactly the kind of second album that bodes well for the long term future of Caveman. On Wednesday night at Webster Hall, the band celebrated a homecoming and the CD’s new release with a triumphant show before a packed house. The setlist included most of the band’s recorded material and they were simply ebullient throughout the seventy-five minute set. Matthew Iwanusa spent much of the between-song banter thanking the crowd and acknowledging the band’s fortunes, and the feeling was mutual.

We recorded this set with the Sennheiser cardioids mounted inside the soundboard booth and mixed with an excellent feed provided by the band’s touring FOH. Enjoy!
