Caribou

Caribou is Dan Snaith of Ontario, a math wiz and accomplished musician who has been developing his own unique brand of electronica since 2000. Andorra, his latest release and first under Merge Records, has been receiving high marks from great sources since August of this year.

Considered by many to be his strongest album yet, it is packed full with lush, psychedelic electronica with 60's-inspired vocals and truly mesmerizing production. This is another one of those albums that is best experienced with a good pair of headphones and a full listen from start to finish. Here are a few quality thoughts on the album from Lost at Sea:
"Nine tracks in all, Snaith truly blazes through Andorra in a streak of diversity, continuing with "She's The One," which features the vocals of fellow Canuck and Junior Boys member Jeremy Greenspan. Two tracks later, the Eastern-flavored pop nugget "Eli" is a great homage to Sgt. Pepper-era Beatles, and the closest thing I've heard to that album since it last spun on my Technics."
