The Cave Singers is a three-piece folk band from Seattle, Washington. The band consists of guitarist Derek Fudesco (former Pretty Girls Make Graves bassist), along with drummer Marty Lund (formerly of Cobra High), and vocalist Pete Quirk (formerly of Hint Hint). They formed in 2007 just after the demise of PGMG. They have released three outstanding albums to date. No Witch, their third release and first on Jagjaguwar, is a departure from their two previous releases in that most of the songs are now electric.
The two songs below are a great illustration of the transition they have made from their past acoustic sound to their new electric sound. “Swim Club”, with it’s sweet and warm acoustic roll, conjures the feelings of working out in the yard on a nice summer day while the kids ride their bikes up and down the street. While “Black Leaf” brings the rock, and brings it good. The hand claps, tambourine and chunky guitar really make this song move. These songs are so good, when you have finished listening to them, you will immediately go out and buy this album. It may even become THE soundtrack to your upcoming summer. Enjoy.

These tunes seem like they’d fall over in a strong enough breeze, and with songs rarely composed.
