Invitation Songs by The Cave Singers

Seattle's The Cave Singers are more suited to mountaintops than the dark, lonely recesses of a cavern. An echoey canyon would be even better, somewhere the sounds could bounce around like birthday balloons. An open valley filled with buzzing insects and rustling branches might provide a proper backdrop to this magnetic and modern American folk. Anywhere but a cave. Anywhere things with ears are present.

Pete Quirk's voice is expectedly odd and not annoyingly nasal, occupied with little slips and yelps, tripping innocently around meandering guitars and shuffled percussion. It's a cute little dance, highly smile-inducing, and would be right at home over the credits of your favorite feel-good art film.
