I know you don’t want me to tell you how another bearded bunch of bohemian bros from the Pacific Northwest have this rad folk-rock project that you simply must dig, but that’s exactly what Seattle’s Cave Singers are and that’s just what I’m about to do. Comprised, in part, of dudes who were all in fairly successful (and somewhat decent) post-punk acts in the early 2000s — Pretty Girls Make Graves, Cobra High, Murder City Devils — The Cave Singers comes to its warm-centered, slow-glowing folk-rock songs by way of punk music’s looseness but none of its bombast. Over the course of five albums released since 2009, The Cave Singers, anchored by Pete Quirk and Derek Fudesco, has been consistent in making pretty, patient, rock-seasoned folk songs that feel like heartland hymns to broken love and aimless nostalgia. The band just self-released its fifth album, Banshee, back in February and arrive at the 502 with the momentum of a beautiful new album and a growing back catalog of slept-on gems. With Dreamhouse.
