Caracara’s Summer Megalith made waves when it was originally released in the fall of 2017. Emerging from Philadelphia’s burgeoning network of artists used to playing shows in basements, Caracara’s sound was already too big for the rooms it was being played in. Early adopters at Pitchfork & Stereogum compared the album’s ambitions to artists like Bon Iver & Wolf Parade, while understanding that the band’s roots in the DIY, hardcore-adjacent Philly scene made more intense acts like Pianos Become The Teeth and Deafheaven just as likely influences.
Summer Megalith will see its first ever vinyl release this fall on Memory Music. Caracara’s first release with the label & Summer Megalith follow-up EP Better was released this spring.
