Amoeba Review

10/29/2015

If Count Basie or Buddy Rich knew how to use Garageband and a sampler, they might sound something like Caravan Palace. Featuring the whimsy of a Woody Allen soundtrack stuffed into an Apple II computer, Robot (also known for the the far cuter title <I°_°I>) is a blast of horns and electro beats, strings and synths living in harmony under Caravan Palace’s anything-goes banner. Culling sounds from old doo-wop singles, big band standards, and New Orleans jazz, Caravan Palace inserts a microchip or two into an old Victrola to glitch out, mix, and whack apart bits of old numbers to create new tracks that feel surprisingly faithful. Every track has a loose, carefree feeling of being a little too boozy and just floating around with fun tunes. What Daft Punk did for American hard funk and disco, Caravan Palace is doing to dusty 78s found in estate sales: giving them a good polish and reconfiguring them for the 21st century.
