65 Cent Diner

CHECK STOCK!!! The band’s Discontinued Perfume was named Best Indie Pop Album of 2011 by Popmatters. Washington DC's THE CARIBBEAN has been making experimental pop music since 1999. Their latest album for Hometapes, Discontinued Perfume, was praised by Pitchfork, Pop Matters, The Washington Post, Blurt and Magnet. Their music is often described as subtle, crafty, shadowy, cynical, beautiful, observational, oblique and surreal. For those who haven't heard them before, "The 65 Cent Dinner" is the perfect introduction to the world of The Caribbean. The sonic details are all here: the hushed vocals, spacey keyboards, deep bass, glitchy loops and catchy chord progressions. The song describes a person "caught at the intersection of euphoric good fortune and dark emptiness," according to singer MICHAEL KENTOFF. The lyrics are a cryptic storytale, and inspired in part by the writings of the poet Weldon Kees (who disappeared in 1955; his abandoned Plymouth Savoy was found with keys in the ignition on Golden Gate Bridge).
