Sometimes, you just like the title

I’ve admitted this before, but I have no special access to new music (I’m working on that one…and any PR people interested…send something along), but I find some of the most interesting music at the Indie Library in my area. Now, I call it the Indie Library, because it has some of the most diverse NEW music…yep, new music. I’ve found the more recognized bands like Interpol, They Might Be Giants, Spoon, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, and others…and then there’s the little known stuff. My most recent find came because I happened to like the name…

Caribou’s new album, Andorra.

I honestly had never heard of them, but I used to live in Barcelona, Spain, and have visited Andorra, and I quite liked it, so I went ahead and picked it up. RealPlayer tells me it’s a new experience in post-punk type record. I think they’re right…but I’d give Caribou the “Band of Horses” award for being on the verge of breaking through. There are some good tracks on this CD, and what’s more, it’s new and innovative.

You can find a legit-free download for the lead track at download.com here

Overall, half of the short album is insignificant, but Caribou shows some flashes.
