OK, let's talk psychedelic pop for a second. If you're not listening to Caribou yet, stop whatever you're doing and go take a beautiful trip with Dan Snaith through his (I hate to describe it this way but I'm not creative enough to do better right now) lush soundscapes. If you like early Pink Floyd (real early), you'll love this guy. And even if you don't, you should still listen to Caribou (see also: Manitoba). I love this guy, I love his music, I love seeing him live, and now I have to strike him down for being a dirty little thief.
Check out "Desiree," a beautiful [Editor's note: time to hit the thesaurus, I'm repeating my adjectives] track off one of my favorite albums of 2007, Caribou's "Andorra." At around 1:23, he busts out this gorgeous chorus consisting of the second, fifth, and major third of the root chord, in that order. 2-5-3. Just like Mom used to make. Isn't it nice and harmonious (thanks, thesaurus.com!)? Yes. Yes, it is.
So, what do you think is the most notorious musical rip-off of all time?
PS Do yourself a favor and go listen to "Care of Cell 44" off that same Zombies album. I know it sounds like the Beach Boys in the background, but it's really a bunch of flesh-eating ghouls, out for brains. Get it? Zombies? Eh?
