I tend to sit on the fence when it comes to producers like Jon Hopkins or Bonobo. Whilst I respect their talents as musicians tremendously, I’ve never quite caught onto it.
Caribou’s album, Suddenly, is the exception to this. It’s a delicate and balanced mix of pop and electronica, making it accessible to a broader public rather than just die-hard bleep-bloop fans.
It has accompanied me well over the past few weeks whilst plodding through documents or writing emails – keeping me wholly engrossed and focused in a soundscape of ambient bliss.
