CAVEMAN Announce New Album CAVEMAN Out 4/2 via Fat Possum Records

31 City North American Headline Tour Starts 2/26: Including SXSW and Homecoming New York show at Webster Hall on 4/10

On their self-titled sophomore album Caveman stretch their legs in a number of different, albeit cohesive, directions. Their highly anticipated return will come out in America via Fat Possum Records on April 2nd, and the first single “In The City”  

Caveman—a five-man vibe collective from NYC—released their first album in 2011. As first albums go, CoCo Beware was something akin to a moody statement of intent, a blueprint for a band quickly learning how to create horizon-wide rock songs that were equal parts intimate and expansive. Initially self-released and later snatched up by Fat Possum for re-release in early 2012, the record brims over with four-part harmonies, crystalline guitar lines, and tracks that see-sawed between echoey lullaby (“A Country’s King of Dreams”) to shoegaze-by-way-of classic-FM-radio sprawl (“Old Friend”). The album quickly elevated Caveman from local band to watch to a sizable touring draw and formidable live act, as evidenced by stints on the road with the likes of The War on Drugs, White Rabbits and Built to Spill. Despite being the work of a brand new band, CoCo Beware displayed a kind of Zen-like ease. It was the sound a five friends settling into a nice groove; the music that happens when, for whatever reason, a lot of seemingly disparate elements finally fall into place.

“We all went up to Jimmy’s grandmother’s place in New Hampshire,” says singer Matthew Iwanusa. “That’s where the new record kind of started. It was literally the attic of her barn, lit up by Christmas lights. We’d all sit in this one room together and one by one we’d all go into the bathroom and record ourselves making the most psycho noises possible. It actually felt kind of like a weird breakthrough. We were all confident and comfortable enough with each other to try out these experiments, which extended itself into the making of the new record…which is really just an evolution of this vibe that we’d been cultivating for long time.”

With that, the guys holed up in Brooklyn’s Rumpus Room to start recording in earnest withNick Stumpf (who produced the band’s debut album) and Albert Di Fiore behind the controls. The album is a kind of sonic microcosm—a series of emotional yet tough mini-narratives operating within the same quixotic musical universe.

As a result, the guitars on Caveman are bigger and more expansive, the rhythm section is tighter and more adventurous, the keyboards more opaque and pronounced. Like a marriage between Tangerine Dream, late period Slowdive, and Lindsey Buckingham, tracks like their new single “In the City” and “Ankles” boast synth lines that sound simultaneously retro and futuristic, while “Pricey” and “Never Want to Know” overflow with guitar sounds that could have miraculously floated off an old Cure album. It should be noted that James Carbonetti, the band’s primary guitar player, also happens to be one of the most highly regarded guitar makers in New York City.

And while Caveman’s music could certainly operate on the level of dreamy soundscape and still be excellent, the depth of feeling in front man Matthew Iwanusa’s lyrics helps weave the songs deeply into your memory. When Iwanusa sings Where’s the time to waste on someone else’s life? on “Where’s the Time,” it’s hard not to read between the lines. Wonder and regret seem to fuel the record in almost equal measure.

Facebook Integrates With Dropbox To Power File-Sharing Within Facebook Groups

Posted in News with tags , , on September 26, 2012 by dk

Facebook announced today a new integration with personal file storage company Dropbox. Now, people can share files to Facebook Groups using Dropbox’s cloud-based storage system.

Dropbox’s Chris Varenhorst writes in a blog postannouncing the integration:

“Today we’re psyched to announce that you can share stuff from Dropbox right inside Facebook Groups! Now you can share notes with your study group, add the latest game schedule to your basketball team’s group, or post a birthday video to your family’s group at lightning speed from wherever you are — just as long as you have them saved in Dropbox.

Just like other posts to Facebook Groups, people can like or comment on anything you share from within the group. And if you make any edits to a file you’ve shared, the group will get an update automatically!”

Facebook tells us that this does not replace the current ability to upload files from your computerto Groups. This just opens up the ability for people to upload files that they already have stored in the cloud to Groups — as long as they are stored in Dropbox.(via techcrunch)

Trent Reznor Writing Soundtrack For New Justin Timberlake Facebook Film

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2010 by dk

Nine Inch Nails star Trent Reznor is writing the soundtrack to a new movie starring Justin Timberlake.

The Social Network, which has been directed by David Fincher, tells the story of the founding of Facebook.

Reznor said he agreed to score the film after Fincher approached him with the idea last year.

“I’ve always loved David’s work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story,” he said.

“When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned.”

Reznor has been writing the soundtrack alongside Atticus Ross, and said the pair were near the end of the process.

“We’re looking forward to the next phase – distilling the large amount of music we’ve written for this down to a satisfying record (or two),” he said.

The Social Network is due to be released in cinemas in the US on October 1.
