The Cave Singers

As gorgeous and charming as Cave Singers’ sun-dappled singles like “Summer Light” (from 2009’s Welcome Joy) may be, what often makes our adventurous hometown folksters most intriguing is their dark underbelly, as exemplified by the sinister, snake oil salesmanship driving “Dancing on Our Graves (from their 2007 debut, Invitation Songs). Now that they’ve jumped ship from Matador Records to Jagjaguwar, they’ve also made the wise choice to pair up with Randall Dunn, the man behind the boards on the most recent Black Mountain record and a producer known for his finesse with heavier artists like Sunn O))) and Earth. Dunn’s helming their Jagjaguwar debut, due in early 2011. Tonight’s show will no doubt be an ideal forum in which to check out Dunn’s influence on that new material. With The Moondoggies, Lovesick Empire. HANNAH LEVIN
