Caribou review

Odessa and Jamelia has a whole lot edgier Royksopp going on.  Sun has a similiar warped psychadelia of psychic chasms.

It has loads of really cool layers that all seem to contribute to its dreamy unsettling quality.  Old school trumpets and saxophones add a distant jazzy feel to beats without making it sound 80’s or just dated.
Found Out has this weak falsetto but almost manufactured weak like half of it just got digitally stripped out.
But although there are A few duller monents here it is the edgier tracks of Odessa, Sun that carry the album.  You can get it at Amazon: Swim

Galerie Stratique

I’ve been a fan of Galerie Stratique ever since I came across them on some Boards of Canada forum or something. I’de downloaded a few songs and listened to them for ages until I realized how much I liked them and thought it was probably best if I bought them.

So I go onto Discogs.com and buy all three albums from one of their dealers. So the seller and I have a few emails back and forth and he’s a really nice guy and he asks me where I came across them and I tell him, mentioning that I felt giulty about illegally downloading the few tracks and he says ‘here’s a man with a conscience!’ Now because they’re coming from Alaska it takes forever and I’m chasing him up, saying, hey have you sent them or what?

I finally get them and I check out the back cover of Horizzons and check the name of the guy behind the music and it’s him! The same guy.

Link or you can get it on Amazon: Nothing Down to Earth (the better one , oi reckon)

Caribou

Mainly listening to Caribou.

This one, Odessa actually reminds me of a harder Royksopp. Watching the video is kinda bizzare. I wanted to clean my screen (is that a euphamism) the whole time.
