Listen: Caveman – “Over My Head”

11 Mar


Back in 2011, one of the sounds that we went back to time and time again was the fuzzy late summer evening, car windows down, lo-fi pop of Caveman’s debut album, CoCo Beware. It was, as we said when ranking it in our Top 10 Albums of the Year, like mixing Pavement with the Beach Boys.

Nearly two years have passed and soon we shall be treated to the New York based five-piece’s follow-up album, the eponymously titled, Caveman. They recently revealed their first track from the album, “In The City”, which is as warm and groove-filled as anything on CoCo Beware, and last week they dropped this new jam, “Over My Head”.

Presumably they have called it “Over My Head” not as a suggestion of their intellectual deficiencies but actually because it is so laid back it’s horizontal. For a dot less than 4 minutes we are gently hoisted onto a bed of guitar-shaped clouds and buffeted tenderly along on a reverb lullaby. You can feel the stress washing away as Matthew Iwanusa’s vocals massage your shoulders and the soft brush of drums work the temples. It’s a kick off the shoes, crack a beer in the evening and forget the world wind-down of a tune.

Caveman will be released on 2 April via Fat Possum and can be pre-ordered here.
