Caveman, Pure Bathing Culture 

When: Sun., April 7, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

You might be surprised to learn that the latest LP from New York quintet Caveman is its second, not first. Not only is the 12-song set self-titled, but it also betrays an act still outlining the shape of its own sound. Caveman floats between Grizzly Bear's dramatic jangle and The War on Drugs' warped classic rockisms, between a muted, moody reserve that suggests the best of chillwave and memorable hooks that far outstrip that niche's sense of ambition. Though Caveman seems to still be discovering its own style, the process, as documented on this latest batch, is both fruitful and fascinating, with interesting textures and immediate tunes thriving within the same amorphous space. Less adventurous Portland pop duo Pure Bathing Culture shares the bill. —Grayson Currin
