 MOSCOT MUSIC AND EXTENDED FAMILY PRESENTS: 

FREE, UP CLOSE & PERSONAL, LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCES 

CAGED ANIMALS AND I AM LIGHTYEAR 


Saturday, September 22nd @ 3pm
MOSCOT Gallery & Music Space @ MOSCOT ORCHARD STREET
118 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002 (NE Corner of Orchard & Delancey Streets)

Born mostly out of playful, late-night improvisation on home recording equipment, and experimentation with tones and beats, Caged Animals’ Vincent Cacchione (also a member of Soft Black) has created a highly personal, wistfully nostalgic world that basks in the golden glow of love both new and old, in the haze of regret and the blur of days gone by. Caged Animals, therefore, arose as a reaction to the darkness: the soft-focus yin to Soft Black’s unrelenting yang. Caged Animals' release, Eat Their Own, was recorded “all hours of the day and night” from Cacchione's home in Brooklyn. 

I Am Lightyear, the brand new electro-pop baby of Lauren Zettler. I Am Lightyear combines stark, popping electronics, warm, bouncing basslines and Zettler’s own airy vocals, to create a sound that’s both human and intangible — filled with space and feeling. This strong music, which comes from Lauren’s eclectic background addresses vulnerability while revering strength, in the great tradition of Emily Haines and Patty Griffin.

Extended Family was born out of the desire for Family Records to work with artists who weren't signed to their label, in a way that felt positive and fun for everyone involved. Past projects have involved a free mixtape and a series of events, with the first taking place at SxSW and the second, a live music series at The Ace Hotel in NYC. Extended Family's latest adventure is teaming up with MOSCOT for a weekend of "Farewell To Summer" at The MOSCOT Orchard and Court Street locations.
