Los Angeles based band James Supercave will be releasing their four song EP, The Afternoon, on March 25 via Hit City U.S.A. The Afternoon is the LA quintet’s first official release. The band’s production is engrossing with a sultry delivery, a hybrid of guitar solos and analogue synths, like finding David Bowie locked into a groove above J-Dilla beats. As themes run the gamut with a casually apocalyptic smirk and cool, quick wit, the songs escalate naturally to epic scales, impressive and moving. You can get a taste of the EP by streaming new song “The Right Thing” at the link below.


“The Right Thing” has gotten a ton of acclaim on the blogosphere, with Buzzbands LA calling it “a compositionally dextrous thrill ride of indie rock and electro sprinkled with a little bit of Ziggy’s stardust and (lead singer Joaquin) Pastor’s don’t-try-this-at-home falsetto. Finally, some art-rockers that live up to the name art-rockers.” Impose Magazine said “This is that progressive, big time sweeping rock sound that your dad always told you, and swore up and down that folks these days never understand.” KCRW’s Jason Bentley listed the band as one of the top ‘5 LA Musicians to watch in 2014’ after a demo leaked onto local airwaves.


The band is also excited to announce they will be playing a residency of shows at The Echo in Los Angeles this March, beginning on March 3, followed by a spring run of tour dates with Warpaint. For their full itinerary, please see below.
