Like so many indie-rock bands nowadays seem to be, Caveman is from Brooklyn. What's a bit more surprising is that its five members are actually from Brooklyn — born and raised. The band formed in 2010, with Matt Iwanusa at the helm, and has just released its third album, Otero War. The record, which took Caveman six years to write, is an open-ended concept album whose songs nevertheless stand well on their own. Hear some of those songs performed live for World Cafe in this session.
