It Only Takes One
The last few entries have lined up nicely in terms of theme and tone; quiet and comfortable with a few sharp twists of melancholy to set off the flavors. 50,000,000… caps things off nicely and is the perfect balm for the scorched Packers fan after Sunday’s colossal collapse. The planets must have aligned right above the pacific northwest for those last five minutes.
Caroline Says is another one of those incredibly lucky Bandcamp finds. With a Last.fm listener base only a little over one hundred people, they’re criminally under-exposed.
The sound here, again, is subtle and understated with a surprising mix of different styles and tone. There’s syrupy mellotron backing, slow piano interludes and a stab at chilled bossa nova that works better than it should.
