Savoir Adore - The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and the Girl With Animals in Her Throat (2008)
This record is just fantastic. It's a bit of a concept album in that it tells a story, but the story does not go from beginning to end in one telling, or even using only words. Some of the story is told in melody, and every now and again words will come to bridge the different pieces of music together. I like that, because it means the story is never told the same way twice, nor does it mean the same thing to every person who hears it. Soundscapes and synth all around! Who's hungry?
For fans of: Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, Los Campesinos!
