Caveman @ Webster Hall, 4/10/2013
And how was this vision a departure from CoCo Beware?After a lenghty tour that saw them hit SXSW (including one of our day parties) and most of the rest of the continent, Caveman came back to New York on last week (4/12) for a show at Webster Hall with Lucius and Pure Bathing Culture which also served as a hometown record release party for their new self-titled album.
We were seeing a lot more UFOs, getting more into the universe vibe.
It does sound like an alien tune a little bit...something otherworldly.
Thank you! I think we've just been playing music with each other a lot more, and just--our brains connected a lot more. The initial idea we were all talking about was just to get a little less of a blurred line between everything. Seeing a UFO in the woods was kind of our vision.
When you're touring, is it always good to come back to New York?
Yeah, the best. You grow up here, it's like, you're just such used to fast-paced and a lot of people around, and you just do whatever you want at any time. So then traveling is amazing, but then you realize the bars close at 2 am, and you're like, "What?! I'm just getting started!" You can't get the sandwich of your dreams in the middle of the night. - [Gothamist]
More pics from that show, plus Caveman's setlist and a spotify stream of the LP, are below.
We knew Caveman were finishing up their new album and now we have the details. The self-titled album will be out April 2 (a popular release date) via Fat Possum. You can stream the first track released from it -- the synth-drenched "In the City" -- below. Cover art and track list is below as well.
As mentioned, Caveman (who just played Kidrockers at Brooklyn Bowl) are gearing up for an extensive North American tour that will hit SXSW, both coasts and Canada before returning to NYC for a show at Webster Hall on April 10 to which Pure Bathing Culture have been added to the bill (tickets). Updated tour dates are below.
Father John Misty at Webster Hall earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Father John Misty, the current project of former Fleet Foxes member Josh Tillman, is continuing to chronically tour internationally over the course of the next few months. His last NYC show was a sold out gig at Webster Hall and he'll be returning to the area for a far more intimate show at Hoboken's Maxwell's on May 17. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/1) at noon.
That show, like most of his spring US run, is with Adam Green (Moldy Peaches) and Binki Shapiro (Little Joy), whose new album together was released today. You can stream it below via Spotify and check out the video for "Just to Make Me Feel Good," which was directed by Dum Dum Girls bassist Malia James.
Meanwhile, FJM recently recorded an acoustic version of "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" live at TRI Studios. A video of that performance and a list of all dates are below.

Gardens & Villa at Webster Hall in October (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Santa Barbara indie pop crew Gardens & Villa haven't given us an album since their 2011 self titled debut on Secretly Canadian, but they did treat us to some music this year with a cover of "Gypsy" for the the Fleetwood Mac tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me, and a remix of their tourmates Polica's "The Maker" for Polica's remix EP.
We asked the band for a list of their top 10 songs of 2012, and like their own sound, most of the artists they chose lean on the indie pop side of things like Beach House, Ariel Pink, Peaking Lights, Pure Bathing Culture, and others. You can check out their full list below.

This month's issue of UK music magazine MOJO features a free CD titled Rumours Revisted, a tribute to Fleetwood Mac's landmark 1977 album, Rumours. (Not the first time a Fleetwood Mac tribute album came out this year.) The compilation features covers by Yeasayer, Liars, Julia Holter, Pure Bathing Culture, The Besnard Lakes, Dylan LeBlanc, and more. You can stream Yeasayer's take on "Second Hand News" and Liars' reworking of "The Chain" below, and to hear the rest of the album, you might have to get your hands on a copy of the new issue of MOJO or scour the internet for a download. (Side note: I've always wanted to hear 2007-era Yeasayer cover "The Chain" but I guess some things will have to remain up to the imagination...)
Over the summer, Fleetwood Mac revealed plans to tour in 2013. Details for that have still not been announced but the band continue to show signs that the tour is on the way. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Lindsey Buckingham revealed that he'd also like to record with Fleetwood Mac again:
"Absolutely, absolutely I would," he says of creating a new album. "In fact, about six, seven months ago, John [McVie] and Mick [Fleetwood] were over here and we actually cut some tracks, and we did enough for maybe half an album. But you gotta get Stevie [Nicks] on board with that, and at the time, she was really quite caught up in what she was doing . . . but I would love to do that because John and Mick were playing their asses off."The band last released Say You Will in 2003.
Streams and tracklist are below.
The 2012 edition of MusicFestNW takes place in September 5 - 9 at 18 venues in Portland, OR and will feature performances from over 150 bands, including Passion Pit, Hot Snakes, Girl Talk, Danny Brown, Beirut Silversun Pickups, Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, many more.
In addition to those previously announced artists, MFNW has just added The Hives, Flying Lotus, Wild Nothing, DIIV, Quasi, Moon Duo, My Goodness, DZ Deathrays, and Strand Of Oaks to the already impressive line-up. Wristbands, available various levels and packages, and tickets to individual shows are on sale now. Check out the complete MFNW lineup below.
