Local Favorites Caveman Play Webster Hall Tomorrow NightApril 9th, 2013
Caveman—Jeff Berrall (bass), Jimmy “Cobra” Carbonetti (guitar), Sam Hopkins (guitar), Matthew Iwanusa (vocals and guitar) and Stefan Marolachkis (drums)—received a tidal wave of buzz with the release of their debut LP, the guitar-filled CoCo Beware, in 2011. Their live shows, filled with layered harmonies, tribal drums, a double dose of distortion and hazy guitar feedback, also earned the Brooklyn band notice, including from The Bowery Presents Live, which hosted them for a Track + Field session, playing an acoustic version of “My Room,” above, and an interview. Since then Caveman have gone on to record a second album, an equally well received self-titled affair (stream it below), which Filter says is “both more refined and more expansive” than CoCo Beware. The five-piece also continues to grow as a live band, which you can see firsthand when Caveman play Webster Hall tomorrow night.
