Sometimes it’s just nice to hear some really pretty, mellow rock. All the parts are where they should be, there aren’t any tricks or avant-gimmicks. Which isn’t to say that Caveman’s “Old Friend” is any way common—it’s not—but it’s insanely easy to listen to, and that, believe it or not, is an uncommon feat. Caveman’s new album, CoCo Beware (out digitally on 9/13 and physically 11/15) couldn’t come any later—it’s the kind of wistful, windows-down driving music you want to listen to as you hightail it out of the city for summer’s last gasp.
