The Public’s weekly local music reviews and previews.
Album: Sober Space by Caves
Released this week via Buffalo underground record label Steak and Cake Records, Sober Space EP by Caves is a woozy, drunken indie record. Caves is Jacob Levin, a Buffalonian living in Cincinnati. On Sober Space he’s created a unique world, not quite post rock, not quite indie rock—at times melodic and at times completely disjointed. It’s not long, only three songs all under three minutes, but it’s most certainly worth your listening time.
Single: “Fallback” by Keith Concept
MC Keith Concept returns with a new single released this week. The gangster rap track, “Fallback,” has Concept dropping bars so quick it sounds like he just might lose his breath. He never does, however, repping Buffalo all through the track in his signature gravely delivery.
