It's Cave Week at Pacific Standard

Welcome Joy, the second album from hometown heroes the Cave Singers, is out today. Here's a sample:

The Cave Singers Beach House mp3 (via Matador)

We first saw these boys in Brooklyn at Luna Lounge, and several months later at Union Hall, on solid recommendation from the ubiquitous Cherry Canoe. Their first album Invitation Songs has been on steady rotation ever since. Here's one of my favorite cuts:

The new record sounds like a slightly more self-confident progression of the same, which is a great thing. Without launching into a full-blown review, I would just say that I find the Cave Singers to be a fitting accompaniment to whatever locale or state of mind I happen to be in, above ground or below. Additionally, I recommend attending their live shows soon and often, as they will surely be in your area some time soon.

In the mean time, order up some MP3s, CD or vinyl from Sonic Boom or directly from Matador.
