Welcome to our brand new column in which we unravel the distinctions between two homonymous musical acts. Read this column regularly and the next time someone confuses Beach Fossils for Beach House, or Cold Cave for Caveman, you’ll be able to clear your throat and gently inform others about the obvious nuances — thus confirming that you are not only original and authentic, but the most musically informed of all of your friends.

I don’t often enjoy sticking my tongue in a random stranger’s mouth while a roomful of people watch, but it was for a fashion spread in a magazine of which I’m a fan, so I obliged.
