'Los Elefantes' : Haiku Salut

I don't write about a ton of instrumental music on here, probably because of my own overwhelming bias toward words, but I thought I'd break that pattern today. Check out "Los Elefantes" by U.K. trio Haiku Salut. "Los Elefantes" is a really lovely little tune that mixes a bit of electronica with gorgeous pop-y folk sounds. I love how delicate and layered it is– it's the kind of piece that demands your full attention. Haiku Salut's album drops in the U.S. tomorrow (April 16). It's called Tricolore and I'd be willing to bet it's a great headphones record. If spring has sprung in your part of the world, find a sunny spot and take "Los Elefantes" for a spin.
