Caribou Suddenly Something to look forward to in 2020 already! New Caribou album incoming, Dan Snaith's first album in what will be six years. Have a listen to the first taste, 'You & I', below. In 2014 Dan Snaith aka Caribou released Our Love to overwhelming critical acclaim and massive fan support. Now Caribou returns with his seventh studio album Suddenly, an album about family and the changes we go though as those relationships evolve. Suddenly is the most surprising and unpredictable Caribou album to date. Though it retains the trademark Caribou warmth and technicolour, this album is littered with swerves and left turns, and amazes with it’s yet unheard nuances, samples and hooks. As Snaith puts it, “these albums are like photo albums for me – when I look back at the old ones, they’re a snapshot of my life at that time, full of people who are close to you”. This is the drive to continue to make Caribou albums. Full bodies of work where Snaith is able to evaluate things, look at those around him and celebrate them. As his passion and joy in music making remains as fresh as ever, Suddenly is the purest example of this yet. City Slang CD | LP Pre-Order

Caribou Up In Flames [vinyl] Reissue of the second album by Dan Snaith, originally released as Manitoba We originally said this The next step in Manitoba's continual development! This time he's opted for live instrumentation and subdued vocals over skillfully edited and manipulated breakbeats, an entirely lush and uplifting listening experience that bears resemblance to Four Tet/Fridge kind of stuff and has even been compared to early Mercury Rev and Beach Boys too. Beautitful sun-drenched pleasure that's guaranteed to make you happy! Watch out for his material under the name Caribou as well - he had to change it on account of some legal beef of some sort...

Caribou The Milk Of Human Kindness Non Record Store Day repress of The Milk Of Human Kindness on black vinyl + CD. Dan Snaith's first album under his Caribou guise after a lawsuit made him change his artist name from Manitoba because a New York punk band got there first. The first thing you notice about The Milk of Human Kindness is the emotional depth and range. The bear masks are off, the naked passions are running free. Like a lost album that’s just been rediscovered in a basement for the first time since 1973, it’s part reflective, campfire-comedown, part rampage of sonic discovery, reveling in energy and motion.

Daphni / Fabric Fabric 93 The first full length body of work from Daphni (Caribou) under the name since 2012's Jiaolong album and most recently Caribou's standout 2014 album Our Love. Featuring 23 new and unreleased compositions from Daphni with four edits of other artists that makes up this Fabriclive mix. “Some of the most acclaimed underground dance tracks of recent times” - The Guardian “A lot of these tracks were recorded in situ in the mix itself - I'd put one track in place and instead of searching through existing music to find the track to follow it I'd just make an entirely new one. You’d expect a DJ mix where someone made each track to follow the previous one to be very homogenous. To seem like it was planned out and build in a controlled way. I think the result is almost exactly the opposite! The tracks on here pull from very diverse ends of the spectrum of music that I like/make. In the end, I just sort of charged ahead following my nose as to where the mix should head next. I hope that some of that sense of intuition translates to those listening to the finished mix”.
