if ella went to the caribbean....

today's posts are about songs that make me happy. i was driving along (across the state of virginia, as per usual) and i heard "lullaby" by the cure. it made my day infinitely better. hopefully this song by koop does the same for you.

the mix of calypso rhythm with melodica (an underappreciated instrument!), some kind of woodwinds, an old jazz sound and ane brun's gorgeous, wavering vocals is perfection. i'm sitting in panera, using their free wifi while listening to this song on repeat, and despite the occasional faint order call (so annoying, what do people do without headphones?), i feel like i'm in paradise.

koop - koop island blues (ft. ane brun)
