Cavedweller is the brother of Denton art-rocker Fishboy. But musically Cavedweller is the Sentridoh to Fishboy's Folk Implosion, the introspective four-tracker to the symphonic popper. Cavedweller even sounds like Lou Barlow, with a deep voice and slow, spoken delivery. Sugary Glue crams 21 tracks into 37 minutes, and it would be twice as good if it were half as long. It plays like a stream-of-conscious; why not prune it to eight or 10 great songs? The best here are raw, extremely lo-fi, quirky and intoxicating. But you might accidentally skip past them in the glut.
