Caveman – “Empire”

Brooklyn band Caveman had a great, if overlooked, year. After putting out a very nice self-titled album (the highlight of which, “Over My Head,” is a must listen), they spent the rest of the year touring, stopping at Sasquatch Festival, where I saw them play an excellent set. Now they’ve just dropped “Empire,” a B-side… More »

Caveman – “In the City” Video

The New York indie-pop band Caveman rounded up a pretty impressive cast for their video for “In The City,” the first single from their self-titled sophomore album. The clip stars Julia Stiles and the Dollhouse actor Fran Kranz as a tourist couple visiting New York, and it looks like a fun visit before a creepy… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2013

Remember last month when we made a hand-wringing post about the death of the MP3 and thereby the end of the downloadable Monthly Mix? Well, fuck it — ZIP FILE BACK. Thank you for your comments and opinions! This is blog-in-action. But, we know some of you enjoyed the ease and increased songchoice represented by… More »

Stream Caveman Caveman

Next week, the expansive New York indie-pop quintet Caveman will release their self-titled sophomore album, the follow-up to the 2011 debut CoCo Beware, which got a lot of play around the internet. We’ve already posted the recent album tracks “In The City” and “Over My Head,” and now the band is offering the whole album… More »

Progress Report: Caveman

Full disclosure: I’ve known the guys in Caveman for a long time. For a brief, glorious moment in 2010, the band’s drummer, Stefan Marolachakis, and I were bartenders together in the East Village. He quit bartending when Caveman started to take off (while sadly I did not). In the years since, I’ve had the pleasure… More »

Caveman – “Over My Head”

Caveman are a five-piece from New York that are in no way related to the awful ’80s film of the same name starring Ringo Starr and Dennis Quaid. However, Caveman are responsible for “In The City,” an especially pretty track we heard earlier this year. Now comes another single from their self-titled follow-up to 2011’… More »

Caveman – “In The City”

Here’s “In The City,” an early taste of Caveman’s upcoming self-titled album. We know the band’s allegiance to New York is pretty deep, but their sunniness is taking me out of the barren town we share and into some convertible cruising down the 405 in my mind. It is lovely. Check it out below. More »

Grandaddy, Caveman @ The Independent, San Francisco 8/12/12

Even though Jason Lytle  has a new solo album, he managed to work in some reunion dates with much loved Grandaddy. Their triumphant David Cross approved set at Outside Lands rightfully necessitated a late night after show on Sunday at the Independent. Caveman provided support with their shimmery guitars and synthesizer washes. Check out the… More »

Outside Lands 2012 In Photos

Over the weekend, thousands of fans flocked to this year’s Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park. Overcast and chilly weather was offset by the fire from the Metallica pyrotechnics and warm vibes from festival attendees. Neil Young & Crazy Horse turned up their guitars to close out Friday, Metallica blew everyone away with their hellfire… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

BLOG GAME BRYCE HARPER in the mix again for videos of the week, and you know exactly where this is going (nods head toward top of the post). But, there’s some other stuff worth talking about too, videos with much less overt references to the JFK assassination. Shall we? More »

Caveman – “Old Friend” Video

Caveman’s new video is a high-concept, intriguing clip featuring the ruins of an afterparty, a disembodied Peter Sarsgaard and a spooky, vintage cinema aesthetic. It’s intense. Philip Di Fiore directs. Watch it below. More »

Caveman Soundtrack “I Love NY” Tourism Spot

Caveman are a New York band, so it only seems appropriate that their sunny song “My Time” should soundtrack an “I Love New York” tourism commercial, though it seems a bit off that the ad focuses on New York state as a whole instead of just the city. Nobody’s thinking about the Finger Lakes whe… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The video I keep thinking about this week isn’t one of the ones on this list; it’s “Ill Manors,” from the British rapper Plan B, and it’s almost a month old at this point. The clip includes images from last year’s London riots, as well as a whole lot more footage that’s explicitly meant to… More »

Caveman – “Thankful” Video

New York indie-pop quintet Caveman’s debut album Coco Beware is kinda-sorta named after pro wrestler Koko B. Ware, but it’s still somehow surprising that their new video for “Thankful” is based entirely around the grimier, seedier corners of the fake sport. This one depicts the entire process of Stockade winning the NYWC Fusion Championship, which… More »

The National-Curated Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Fest Announces Lineup: The Walkmen, St. Vincent, Beirut, The Antlers, More

In January, Brooklyn Academy of Music announced that it would host a spring festival curated by the National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner, and today that event, called Crossing Brooklyn Ferry (a reference to this Whitman poem), announced it’s full lineup. It goes down 5/3-5/5. And, yeah, if you’re into indie rock, skewing the more arrangement-heavy… More »

Stereogum Presents… Getting Started: Caveman Pt. II

Previously on Stereogum, we caught up with Stereogum40 alumnus Caveman as they reminisced about the formation of the group, stopping by instrumental old hangs like Sin-é and The Library. Today we introduce the second part of that feature, which captures Caveman’s recent Stereogum-presented gig at the Echo as well as the band talking a little… More »

Caveman – “Easy Water” Video

The Brooklyn shimmer-rock band Caveman specializes in a pretty kind of haze, so it’s only appropriate that the video for their song “Easy Water” looks nice while the actual objects in it are tough to discern. The video focuses entirely on bodies moving around in water while light refracts down. One of the few thing… More »

Stereogum Presents… Getting Started: Caveman

In our new video series Stereogum’s partnered with Chevy to chronicle how some of our favorite emerging artists got their start. First up is New York City’s Caveman, one of the brightest stories to come out of this year’s CMJ Festival, partly because they played a dizzying number of shows and partly because their fizzy,… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »
