Caribou’s New Video for ‘Odessa’

For the last 3 days I’ve been listening to the new Caribou album Swim pretty much non-stop. It’s kinda of a departure since his last album Andorra back in 2007 but it’s an absolute welcome change. I feel like he’s got this synthesis of LCD Soundsystem, Animal Collective and Junior Boys, but with a splash of Flaming Lips Embryonic weirdness as well.

This is the first song and first single off the album called Odessa which will definitely make some people instant fans. The video is a dreamy haze so watch it full screen to enjoy it completely. The video itself was directed by Video Marsh, who can you find out more about by clicking here.
