#277 carlon – cantaloupe

i was just finishing up listening to caribou’s swim on my itunes when the player spilled over to the next song on the playlist – carlon‘s “cantaloupe”. i can’t remember how or where i got this song, but i love moments like these when something unexpected hits you and grabs your attention immediately. “cantaloupe” is a straightforward five minute southern folk ballad, achingly delivered amidst sweeping layers of psychedelic textures. it plods along wearily, keeping in step with its theme on the painful drudgery of living a life marked by buried lies and conversations run dry, in turn revealing what it really is – a breakup song that dwells not on the common responses of angst or vengeance, but on a hauntingly earnest reflection of past regrets and the very real present question of why. – dan.
