Cayetana

Earlier this week, we mentioned that Waxahatchee, All Dogs and Cayetana would be touring together in January, including stops in NYC on 1/21 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) and 1/23 at Glasslands (tickets). We’ve written about Waxahatchee and All Dogs around these parts, but if you’re going to this tour (which we highly recommend you do), it’s very much worth catching Cayetana as well.

Cayetana have been coming up in Philly’s thriving underground lately, and they’ve shared bills with many of the other great bands in that scene, including Hop Along, Waxahatchee, Swearin’, Radiator Hospital, and more. They’ve also been recommended by Tom May of The Menzingers (and open their upcoming PA show), and recently signed to Tiny Engines, also home of their Philly neighbors Little Big League. Maybe you caught them in NYC when their tour with Ma Jolie (who open the upcoming Menzingers NYC show) hit Coco66 in August with Worriers?

They’ve been talking about releasing a full length on Tiny Engines, so stay tuned for that, but meanwhile they’ve got an excellent 3-song demo on bandcamp and a live session on WXPN that are very worth checking out. Like many of the bands they’ve played with, Cayetana are somewhere between indie rock and punk. Vocalist August Koch has a shakey, folky delivery, a little like The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle, and her lyrics pay attention to detail the way his do too. Musically though, Cayetana is the kind of catchy power chord-driven stuff that you might call pop punk. They’re a good addition to the wealth of bands we’ve been getting like this, and if you’ve been digging this kinda stuff, give their demo a listen.

Cayetana are currently down in Gainesville for The Fest, which they play at 10:10 PM today (11/1). All of their dates are listed, along with a stream of the demo and a live video, below…
