Cave Singers Perform New Song, Head to China

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ag75dBObkg4&feature=player_embedded

There is a particular “feel” to the music of Cave Singers. Certain acts have it and when you find one it’s best to hold on tight, because it is a rare talent. There is something in the way Derek’s guitar-picking blends with Pete’s vocals that creates a magic in the air that’s downright palpable. And Marty is so solid on drums and percussion. It’s not easy to find the appropriate fills for music with such a fragile beauty, a heavier hand and it could all go to pot. The above video is brought to us by the fine folks at KEXP and No Depression and was recorded during the No Depression Festival in Seattle just a few weeks ago. It’s a new song still in the works that for the time being is simply known as “new song,” but it sounds mighty heavenly to me. Watch and enjoy friends, there’s more on the way.

In other Cave Singers news, the band is about to embark on a week long tour of China! I for one can’t wait to hear what the Far East thinks of the Northwest’s best and brightest.

Peter Wolf Crier Cover Nick Drake

As Peter Wolf Crier’s summer tour with Heartless Bastards wound down the guys pulled into Madison, WI for a free university show at the Union Terrace. As the light in the western sky drew low and the stage became awash in a deep summer glow, Peter Wolf Crier launched into a brilliant cover of Nick Drake’s “Place To Be” and created one of those glorious moments where everything was in its right place. Luckily enough, Spencer Wells from Urban Agrarian ( urbanargrarian.com ) was in attendance and captured the moment on film. You can read Spencer’s review of the performance HERE, and check out the video below.

Small Black Give First Details of Recording Their New Record

smallblack12

Last year Small Black released their debut self-titled EP that became a web sensation. Particularly the song “Despicable Dogs” became a golden gem in the pantheon of electro-pop, helped by a truly exceptional music video. Small Black toured the world before settling back to their east coast environs to begin the recording of their new album. The band escaped the hustle and bustle of their Brooklyn homes in favor of the sleepy suburbs of Delaware and proceeded to dive deep into the studio. Stereogum reports on the recording sessions today in the latest installment of their ongoing “Progress Report” series. You can get all the details on what Small Black have been up to and a few hints at the details of their first full-length album right HERE. Stay tuned for more news on the new album in the weeks to come.

The Hippest Kids Listen To Okkervil River

Picture 3

Okkervil River and Roky Erickson played an Ice Cream Social to possibly their youngest audience to date (although sharing music with youth is a passion Will Sheff has shown before). Sponsored by Ice Cream Man and the FYF Festival, the event was open to all ages, and the kids came out in numbers, digging into free scoops of ice cream as they listened to Roky and Okkervil River perform. While some seemed more interested in the ice cream than the music, there were definitely some discerning listeners in the bunch. When the band opened up the floor for a Q&A, Roky and crew fielded such questions as “Why is the Zombie song so loud?” and “What’s your opinion on ukuleles?” (!) And when one little girl was asked “is this your first rock show?” her mother quickly secured her child’s hipster cred by interjecting “oh, she went to see Patti Smith,” discerning indeed!  All and all this was a wonderful wonderful event that makes all those dark bar shows drab in comparison and begs the question of why more rock n’ roll can’t be a family affair?
