New Caribou – “Odessa” [Free MP3]


After watching the new iPad video on Apple that featured Caribou on the background soundtrack, I got curious as to what these guys are up to.  Haven’t heard from them in a while.  I mean their last album, Andorra, was released in 2007! So what a pleasant surprise to find they just announced a new album, Swim, due out April 20 on Merge Records.  And, oh happy day, they released the single “Odessa” for our listening enjoyment.  And if you’re thinking this track is a bit of a departure from Andorra, you’re right.  The inspiration behind Swim was to make ‘dance music that sounds like water.’
