[stream] Caveman // In The City

caveman cover

Do you remember when you loved The Shins? Like, back before Garden State exposed them to the masses and ruined them for anyone who really cared about what they were up to? Likely you’ve moved on from that crush, like anyone who experiences personal growth, but there still might be times that you put Oh, Inverted World on and pine for the time when you felt so effortlessly about a band.

Caveman knows how you feel, and they’re fully prepared to fill that void, right down to the fact that they sound vaguely like James Mercer & Co. – a natural mix of indie/alternative that fits nicely in your cup holders and head rests while exploring some off-the-beaten path townships on a Saturday afternoon.

“In The City” is the first single from the band’s forthcoming, self-titled sophomore album, which will be released on April 2 through Fat Possum. There’s no pre-order information available yet, but I’m certain it will be up in short order.

And when the band isn’t soundtracking New York State tourism ads, they’ll be heading out on an extensive tour that begins at the end of next month and extends through the middle of April. Dates are below.
