Crayon – Caribou

In preparation for listening to the new Caribou (formerly Manitoba) CD, I’ve been listening to this beaut from Up in Flames, a supremely awesome CD. The music just radiates cheerfulness and colour, largely owing to the non-stop bells and mallet percussion. Once that lifts you up, you get a full-blast of vocals that are begging to be sung by Brian and Carl Wilson. Not all their music is this poppy and accessible, but when it works, it works big time. Imagine Yo La Tengo circa Tom Courtenay as remixed by The Go! Team and produced by Beta Band. No, better. Anyway, the song had already won me over, but then I found the video. It’s super duper cutesy overload on saccharine.
