Caveman
Caveman
Caveman was born in New York in January of 2010, when a group of friends decided it was time to put aside their boyhood ways and start being men. The sound they crafted in that large, dark room is equal parts chamber pop, dreamscape, and horror film score. At a Caveman show you will hear four-part harmonies, spaced-out guitars, synths, and, yes, much drumming. This has been a gallant year for the band, as since their first birthday they have shared the stage with bands such as Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, White Rabbits, Here We Go Magic, Cursive, Amazing Baby, and Blue Oyster Cult. They recently went into the Loveboat studio with Nick Stumpf (French Kicks) to commit their songs to record.

Computer Magic
An enigma of individuality, Danielle Johnson aka Danz aka Computer Magic is her own sound.  Fueled by an obsession with music stemming back to growing up in the Catskills of New York, music has always been her mainstay.

Danz joined the NYC music scene at 18 as a DJ and Promoter, eventually leaving her studies at Hunter College to focus strictly on her music career. Her party roster as a DJ included Ruff Club and Germs with Denny Le Nimh and Spencer Product, Saturdays at the TriBeca Grand for GBH, Space at the Darkroom with Dev Hynes, and Movie Night at the Darkroom with Anton Glamb.

Eventually she took the next step toward something she had yet to do, develop her own music.  Danz relocated to her Mother's in Tampa, Florida where she began teaching herself to create music in Ableton.  The result was Computer Magic – a solid mesh of space-like dance beats and personable, sweetheart lyrics; Computer Magic melds the human and the machine. "When I was younger, one of my favorite movies was Blade Runner.  And after I saw it, I read 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,' the Philip K. Dick book that inspired that movie.  I loved the book, I loved the movie and it was just such a cool subject – what's going to happen in the future, robots being hardly detectable among humans – that it was an interesting thing to play on."

Danz returned to New York and with drummer Chris Egan, who's played with Solange Knowles, Adam Green, and Turing Machine among others – started performing live.  Two years later and Computer Magic has just finished a tour in Japan, while simultaneously releasing Scientific Experience, a compilation CD on Japan's P-vine & Tugboat Records, and will be releasing a debut full length album this summer.  "The idea is to keep improving, to become the best I can.  It'll have the same kind of theme: 1970s science fiction and the vintage future."
