Caribou – Melody Day

Right out of the gate, this track just transcends the listener back to the hey day of the Beach Boys meets brit pop of the 1960’s.This track feels like a 1960’s Kaleidoscope.

Animal Collective – Peacebone

This track from Animal Collective is from their newest album Strawberry Jam which was released yesterday (Sept 10, 2007).

Layers on top of layers of noisy, scratchy, glitchy, music that builds and colescest into a bubbling fun choirs.   The vocals on this track remind me alot of   They Might Be Giants.

Beck – Time Bomb

Well, I’m not the biggest Beck fan, but every now and then he hits a homerun.   This is a catchy fun track that rhymes.
