“Arrives in reverberant, sun-drenched swaths of falsetto vocals, crunching guitars, pulsating drums, jingling sleigh bells and fluttering flutes.”—Mojo
The psychedelic soundscapes created by Canadian electro cosmonaut Dan Snaith (now operating as Caribou, formerly known as Manitoba) came in to full bloom with his excellent album Andorra, picked for many best-of-2007 lists. Breathtakingly kaleidoscopic but crisp and precisely detailed, this edition of Caribou offers much more than an atmospheric immersion. Its multilayered and omni-directional approach pull you further into its star-kissed song craft with each listen.
The Bristol-based duo Fuck Buttons open the evening with the Technicolor drone-driven surges of tribal beats, beatific melodies, and bursts of raw noise as rude as their name that are quickly winning them an avid international following.
