Caribou, 'Andorra' (Merge)

6
Andorra
Critical Mass
Label: Merge

by Jason Gross

The fourth Caribou album by multi-instrumentalist Dan Snaith (who has also recorded electronic music under the moniker Manitoba) sounds like it was hatched in a '60s West Coast haze where melodies billow up like bong smoke. Snaith now claims he's taking time to compose sons, rather than winging it in the studio, and these sticky-pop confections are the result, full of lithe vocals (including a Junior Boys cameo on the indelible "She's the One"), swooning keyboards, distant drums, and assorted benign flashbacks.
