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!

Caveman: September 17, 2011 Beekman Beer Garden + August 19, 2011 Cameo Gallery – Flac and MP3 Downloads and Streaming Songs

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!
