Universal Studios Florida
Universal Studios Florida sounds like Air France as imagined by The Field, with with occasional glimpses of Animal Collective/Panda Bear and Caribou. USF create ambient beach pop with some tribal/drone influences, and their album Ocean Sunbirds is full of tropical atmospherics that arrives just in time for summer.
Not to be listened to in pieces, this music is designed to work together seamlessly from start to finish. Their MySpace describes their sound as “Dense tropical percussion with golden, shining synth lines in an ambient valley where big beat drops are just around every corner.” Recommended for fans of the aforementioned bands as well as High Places and Ducktails.
