It doesn’t happen very often that a NON all star band plays its first show in a sold out Bowery Ballroom. This is the case of Cavemen, a brand new musical project born from two members of Brooklyn band The Subjects. However, we can’t really say that they sold out the Bowery, as on January 24 they are opening for Glass Ghost and White Rabbits… but still, this could be well interpreted as a sign from God! The band’s sound, reminiscent of a more psychedelic version of Bell and Sebastian or The Shins, definitely has appeal and potential. Simple song with beautiful melodies – that’s really all you need sometimes. Check out these guys’ demo here.
P.S. By the way, we have our own name for this kind of music here at The Deli: we call it "Mellow Core". Here’s a list of the Best Mellow Core Artists in NYC.
