Swim, Caribou

This album is unexpected. I am only familiar with Caribou's previous album, Andorra. I enjoyed Andorra, but it didn't require a whole lot of repeat listening. On Caribou's new album they have changed their style. The new album is a mix of mellow trance pop sounds. The type of album MGMT should have put out this year (instead of the shit they did put out).

My favorite song on the album is "Bowls." The song sounds like a remixed version of an Alice Coltrane song (some amazing harp playing mixed with a nice beat).

The entire album is perfect for toes curled into the grass on a warm spring or summer day/night. Also, perfect for background music. The lyrics may not be the most amazing... in fact, the album could live without the lyrics. But, the sound is lovely. A very welcomed surprise.
