On the Horizon: Primitive Simplicities, Caveman.

There may only be a few runes differentiating Canadian instrumental hip hop upstart CΛVEMΛN from Brooklynite five-piece Caveman but aurally, they’re a proverbial world apart from one another. And it’s that there latter to whom our attentions this afternoon turn, as the statesiders here return with In The City: set against a luscious sonic backdrop seemingly indigenous to Local Natives’ back catalogue, Matthew Iwanusa’s affected murmur protrudes forth like a skyscraper insistently poking the unblemished skies above. Akin in timbre to that of The Shins’ James Mercer, it would surely be the apex of this particular piece were its instrumental elements not quite so scrupulously composed and finely compiled thus quietly sublime, we can but hope Caveman’s primitive simplicities one day escape the culturally oppressive confines of their native NYC…
