But to change the vibe up a bit, Caveman will follow Giant People with their mysterious indie sound. Their recent album, Coco Beware, contains songs such as “Easy Waters” and “My Time” that sooth your senses with the combination of lyrics and acoustic instruments. According to an article from The New York Times, this album can be described as “cool-headed” but “straightforward.” The mesmerizing tunes are what is needed prepare yourself for the next band to take the stage –Screaming Females.
Screaming Females will end the night with a bang–only one female in the group though. Articles such as the SXSW review of 2011 found on Pitchfork emphasize that the lead singer, Marisa Paternoster, is a tiny woman with an exceptionally, powerful voice. Their album, Castle Talk, was given a 7.9 on Pitchfork and was quoted as “the band’s tight, tense dynamic.” Prominent sounds of the electric guitar, bass, drums and Paternoster’s voice really make this the rock album what it is, along with their live performance.
