California neo-psych trio James Supercave have come zipping back with a debut full-length album, Better Strange, released in February on Fairfax Recordings.
Vocalist Joaquin Pastor, keyboardist Patrick Logothetti and guitarist Andres Villalobos have crafted a dynamic, synthy album that sneaks up on you fast and then runs frenetically around you in hypnotic loops. The band is touring in support of the new album with a stop at the Black Cat on Sunday, May 1, opening for Wild Belle.
James Supercave deal with themes of finding love and finding yourself while sounding a bit like MGMT or occasionally The Klaxons, although they definitely have their own distinct personality.

As we mentioned, James Supercave are opening for Wild Belle, who have a similar psychedelic vibe in their music, including a new album Dreamland. The two bands should make for a good pair!
