Biography

There's no tomorrow / Set a place at the table

If every story is a story about love, what of suffering, surrender, and redemption? Life says they're in there too. Along with traffic jams and dishes, jobs and sunsets and spilling all the red wine on the floor. All of it.

Naomi, the fourth record from Northwestern mystics The Cave Singers, is a totem to these things: the ... Read more in Amazon's The Cave Singers Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Vague 22 Mar 2013
By Zaroff
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps the kicking, stomping elements of the previous albums has put this latest jaunt into sharper relief in my Creedence timpani ear. There are 3 or 4 stand out tunes that grip, then the latter end of the album, and there is a lot of latter, becomes pleasant and rolling. Rolling and bobbling. Just a little too pleasant. A bit too 'nice'. But then the theme of the whole album is somewhat of a fleeting sensation or vague something-or-other under the reality of everything...maybe this is a Cave Singers zen album then..

Overall i forgot what i was listening too after a while, it become all too easily background. Pleasant as i said, but just not enough variation of heft to mellow to make it engaging. Maybe live these tracks are compelling in themselves, taken with the whole experience. Here however, after 3 gripping albums, this vague mellow-mild with a few pepperings of genius is just album number four, rather than another bout of catchy experiments. Pity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a try. . . . 13 May 2013
By patrick
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cave Singers are one of the more authentic and respectable acts on the overpopulated indie-folk scene today. In a market that is saturated with bearded fleet foxes wannabes, these guys offer a fresh perspective on the whole modern-Americana genre that seems to be gaining so much steam at the moment.

Their latest offering 'Naomi' draws more from country and Americana styles than the more acoustic flavors of traditional folk (favored by bands such as the ever awesome Fleet Foxes and early Bon Iver), it retains a real old-timey 60's blues feel to it, but with a fresh twist of enthusiasm and passion that is lacking among so many of their peers.

Now. . . in all honesty, this album almost sounds like one big long song. It occasionally meanders slightly from its bluesy groove into more straightforward power-chord based rock, but these are the moments when the band are at their weakest. Cave Singers have discovered a sound of their own, and they are happy to stick rather rigidly to it. However, what these guys lack in diversity, they more than make up for in pure talent and passion.

Lead singer Pete Quirk is the sprinkling of magic dust that really manages to lift the band above mediocrity. With a voice somewhere between Van Morrison, Robert Plant and a white gospel preacher (if such a thing exists), his soulful croon effortlessly transforms what would be an otherwise slightly-above-average Americana album into something more spiritual.

With some juicy guitar licks courtesy of lead string-man Derek Fudesco, and a solid rhythm section that neither overpowers nor hides behind the other instruments, Naomi sounds like a rock n roll album that has been dragged through the roots of America, soaking up all of its rich musical minerals. Fans of Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket or older acts like The Band and Canned Heat should find something in Naomi that appeals to their musical tastes.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too average 5 Mar 2013
By kc-scout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I like the Cave Singers a lot. I thought their last two albums were superb. The first album is pretty good, too. For full disclosure, I've had this album a month to listen to (pre-orders got a month early download). So... why only three stars? For starters, they added a full time bass player which certainly adds more complexity to their songs. But that's a bad thing. The Cave Singers were wonderful because of their creative use of non-standard instruments, their simple arrangements, and unique song writing.

Some of the songs on the album are exactly what you'd expect from the Cave Singers - psychedelic folk. The others are average alternative songs with that "full band" feel that the Cave Singers should avoid. I think if you are new to them, you'll probably be less than impressed. There is far less unique instrumentation with a lot of just the standard guitar, bass, drums lineup in half the songs.

I won't address each song individually, but I gave the album as a whole three stars. If you're interested in the Cave Singers start with Welcome Joy. I think they are still very good at what they do, but just not sold on them going the generic band route. I wish they'd stay unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 24 Jun 2013

Just found these guys. They have a great sound. If you like Deer Tick, Kings of Leon, Bob Dylan, Heartless Bastards...you will like these guys. A little bit folk and a little bit rock. They put the two together nicely. After listening to this album I bought "No Witch" and it's just as good. I plan on getting their first two very soon.

Yes the music does have more of a bass line than the previous album that i had purchased but I think that the songs are still great. I have listened to this album over and over after purchasing.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cave Singers' latest release is sweet! 30 Mar 2013

Naomi, the most recent release from the Seattle based Cave Singers shows them at the top of their form. The musicality of each track makes the listener want to play it over and over. Canopy, Have to Pretend, and Easy Way will have you singing along and dancing. The best of all their music so far!
