2020 repress.

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.
