Our album of the year 2010!
Caribou mastermind Dan Snaith's latest recording sees him getting busy in the basement with an album that is intricate, layered, twisted and totally essential. Like the recent four tet album, Snaith has made similar tweaks to the Caribou dynamic. It ranges from the pulsing, balladic acid-house crooner Kali to the the jazzed up experimental noise of Up In Flames, the cavernous oil drums, sleigh bells, blips, and guitars of the downcast Found Out and the dreamy psychedelic animal collective style swirl of Andorra. This is an ambitious album of real depth that deserves you're attention.
