    Part of Caveman's appeal, other than having the coolest debut album title in recent memory (a respelling of the moniker of the '80s WWF superstar), is making the complicated simple.

    While it's not perfect, CoCo Beware is a strong, cohesive opening statement from a group of talented musicians that only gets better with repeated listens.

    The deliberate soft focus lends depth and an air of mystery to what might have been cool-headed, straightforward indie-rock; there are echoes of the Feelies, the Strokes and, somewhere in the distance, the Beach Boys.

    Hints of folksy revelry may abound, but the dynamics are strictly library-level, and the lyrical focus is decidedly inward.

    Coco Beware is actually such an inviting album you can keep it on repeat and just bask in the cozy melodies and gently propulsive percussion.

    The connection between the album's title and its contents remains a question mark, but it's befitting of this surprising, deeply inspired debut.

    As pleasantly promising as CoCo Beware is, Caveman has yet to move past that phase, or to fully harness the alluring darkness at its heart.
