The Cave Singers- Welcome Joy

Genre: folk, indie

Very similar to the first album. Gravelly vocals, lots of shaker, and sparse percussion make an enjoyable, if somewhat forgettable, listen. Seems like the best songs are just using techniques that have been done before by better bands/songwriters. Definitely more accessible than the last album though, I can see myself coming back to some of the songs for a while.

Best Tracks: "Summer Light," "Leap," "Beach House"

I listened through it the other day and was really disappointed. It sounded like a bunch of B sides from the first record. They need to try something different.
