CoCo Beware
Critical Mass
Release Date: November 15, 2011
Label: Magic Man!

by Eric Harvey

For the past couple of years, led by Arcade Fire and Animal Collective, indie has experienced a return to the '60s ideal of rock-as-communal-shoutfest. But Caveman follow in the gentler, soft-prog footsteps of Midlake, the first Yeasayer album, and Bon Iver. There are five dudes in this Paleolithically monikered Brooklyn band, and while drumming is at the core of their craftsmanship, there is no primal screaming in these catchy, rhythm-centric bro-downs. Hints of folksy revelry may abound, but the dynamics are strictly library-level, and the lyrical focus is decidedly inward.
