Caspian plays the opening set Sunday at Boston Calling

In the absence of a gospel choir, the music of Caspian is a pretty good way to ease into Sunday and get a lift for a long day ahead. The Beverly sextet opened Boston Calling Sunday, facing a much larger opening crowd than was on hand for the wet Saturday, stirring it into a slow frenzy.

Caspian played a largely instrumental set, layering all sorts of textures for doses of spacey audio bliss sliced through with tribal grooves; you could trance and dance.
