Album artwork for Andorra by Caribou

caribou, otherwise known as the composer of euphoric, dazzlingly beautiful electronic psychedelia, dan snaith, returns with the rousing album 'andorra'. right from the no-messing, pounding, so melodic, opening track 'melody day' - which may be the finest thing dan snaith has signed his name to - this is up there with the best experimental pop. while electronic in nature, there are a whole lot of other sounds therein. we are hearing a lot of nuggets in this. 'love's ambition', with the flutes, strings and a certain arthur lee quality in the vocals too - check 'sandy'. there are echoes of psych-rock guitar and some heavy tintern abbey drumming. more modern hints of the beta band, even a shared song title in 'she's the one'. a couple of low key electronic tracks serve to build atmosphere for the nine brilliant and unmistakeably who-influenced minutes of 'niobe'. on city slang.
