New Sounds Goin' Round....

The new Caribou album, Andorra, comes out via Merge Records on August 21. This first single, “Melody Day” is a swirling blast of 60’s style melodies and perfectly played (damn, there‘s a lot going on here for just one guy!) lush, psychedelic pop.

Indie-folk songwriter extraordinaire M. Ward has teamed up with actress/real girl/ elf lover Zooey Deschanel for a duet cover of Richard and Linda Thompson’s “When I Get To The Border”. The song will be featured on the soundtrack to the film The Go-Getter, starring Deschanel and scored by Ward, which debuted at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival back in February.

I’d never heard of Cass McCombs before this recent post over at GvsB, but he has a new album coming out on Domino called Dropping The Writ. This song, “That’s That”, is a pulsing, melodic stunner that shows promise for the full length. One of my favorite new songs of the summer.
