Albums Unleashed!

Looking Ahead:
Caribou - Andorra

Poor Dan Snaith. First, he has to change his band name from Manitoba to Caribou two albums in to his career. In addition to that nonsense, his first release under the Caribou moniker, in 2005, had to compete with the likes of Kanye West, M.I.A., Rilo Kiley, Architecture in Helsinki, and the New Pornographers (to name a few) for attention. Flash forward to August 21st of this year, and look who is raining on Mr. Snaith's parade once again. Despite a slew of late Summer/Fall releases that are sure to generate publicity (and maybe even rock a little), I'm certain that Andorra will get its due, even if it is only from me.
