iTunes Review

Blending big band swing, lounge-y downtempo, and noirish vocals, Koop's third album adds loads of live instrumentation to the acid jazz template the Swedish duo forged in the late '90s. The resulting organic energy thrives on tunes like “Forces… Darling”—with its snake-charming clarinet solo and coy duet between Earl Zinger and Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano—and “Koop Island Blues,” which pairs Ane Brun's velveteen vocals with fluttering marimba and mandolin. By making arrangements the priority, Koop churn out blue mood and breezy, electronics-assisted exotica as ageless as it is forward-looking.

THis is a spectacular album! Everyone should get it!!!

Another happy accident story

Found out about this band from the soundtrack for "a broke down melody" which is a surfing film. It's also an album done by brushfire records which jack Johnson, g-love, and others are a part of. But the song on the album was called vuelvo al sur and it was a Koop remix. From there it was on! Found this album and some really great music. Really is not too much better than finding new music for one and listening to great music as another! Bigtime:)
