Album of the Week – 26/02/20

Despite releases from Soccer Mommy, Jóhann Jóhannsson & Yair Elazar Glotman, sir Was, Bullion and more besides, it was a relatively easy choice this week! It’s hard to resist the temptations of Dan Snaith, no matter what name he is releasing under, whether it be Manitoba, Caribou or Daphni, it all sounds sweet! He’s an artist that continues to drag his audience through genres like soul, funk and disco!

Album of the Week – Caribou – Suddenly

Caribou returns with his seventh studio album Suddenly, an album about family and the changes we go though as those relationships evolve. Suddenly refers to the moments of dramatic and unexpected change that occur at points in any life and with in any family. Universal themes that can catch you off guard and change your life in a heartbeat. Suddenly is the most surprising and unpredictable Caribou album to date. Though it retains the trademark Caribou warmth and technicolour, this album is littered with swerves and left turns. Songs drop out and morph into something else entirely just as they’re hitting their stride, samples chopped up beyond all recognition burst out of nowhere.
