I’m a bit undecided about the new Caribou album, Your Love. The reviews have been glowing and I can see what they’re getting at. Some of it is undeniably lovely and several of the songs have a real lightness of touch, with laptop beats and ravey synths and the vocals add a very human touch. Some of it feels a bit insubstantial though and I can’t help but feel there’s too much top end and not enough bass. I could be wrong, maybe I need to give it more time. Maybe I just don’t enjoy listening to full albums that much anymore- that shuffle function, single song internet releases, 12″ singles and compilations have definitely affected my habits. I do really like this one (sadly not a cover of the 1970 England world cup song).
