    This guy?

    the album makes my top... 15 of 2010 so far. it's good. but a little predictable, redundant; it still sounds like caribou but the vocals and the 'dancy' tone are a little less erratic than classic caribou/manitoba.
    just wait till you hear it live. it will all come together then. always does with "this guy."

    and, you will get a show...convinced of it. maybe Mile High Fest?

    Pretty sure the second SF show is sold out, because I can't buy tickets online...I should have snagged one earlier. But I'll see them at Sasquatch and I'm willing to bet a heavy wager that they'll be at TI, too.

    Bowls has so many wonderful sounds in it. I fucking love this song. From the harp to the triangle to the Portishead like beats. I'm all over this album.

    So I've listened to this album a couple times now. What I've noticed is, to me anyway, it's not a casual listening album. If I have it on the background while I'm doing something else it kinda zips by forgetfully.

    But cranked up and listened to with full attention, the really good stuff starts to grab me. There's a lot of subtle textures here, and melodies that require me to really listen. I can see this one being a huge grower for me.

    I had not listened to Caribou before this album.

    I've never been a fan of Caribou before this album, but I love Swim. I even went back and listened to Andorra and it didn't do much for me. Swim is where it is at though. Can't wait for him/them at Sasquatch.

    I did not. Where is this interview. Do I need other Caribou albums? I'm so new to this but i'm falling in love. This is infinitely better than Animal Collective IMO. The different sounds are why I would compare them.

    I'm surprised to...it's a name I'd heard thrown around and directly recommended to me in the past, but never checked them out. I will seek out Andorra.

    do you read other posts in this thread, yo? all your answers are contained within.

    incidentally, Dan is a fan of AC. it's really diff stuff, imo. as much as i love my AC homies, they are nowhere near the musician that Dan is (and will be the first to admit that). this, to me, is a big difference (more instrumentation-based versus sample-based...and the vocals are really different too...tribal vs melodic). but, i may be too close to this one to be a credible critic. others will have to chime in here.

    EDIT: let me be clear that I am not making any claims as to which is the "better" band. i love them both and think they are both amazing live. that being said, i think if Caribou and AC were on the same bill together, that it would be a match made in heaven and everyone would leave there talking about how amazing, and DIFFERENT, each set was. i'll shut up now.

    I don't see (err... hear) how AC and Caribou can be compared on very many levels.

    Geezr, I didn't read the thread, my error.

    I don't know about comparing on many different levels Rage, it's just the sounds being used that reminds me of them. I'm ignorant to all the technicaly machinery and wizardry these two artists utilize so I don't know that they have identical noise makers and there are certainly vocal differences but I hear lots of interesting noises and sounds from both bands but only one of them is pleasing to my ear.

    EDA: Awesome how this thread starts with the youtube clip of Bowls. I feel justified in my instant love for this track.

    Mark, are you going to the Clubhouse show on the 18th? Caribou kind of drew a shitty Sasquatch set time so I want to see him in a small venue, albeit a shitty one like the Clubhouse.

    I'm trying to fight off the urge due to financial constraints. I was going to see Talib Kweli at the same place next Friday but canceled that as well. $15 for Caribou beats $30 for Talib though so it's back to being a possibility.

    So...Caribou is just one guy, right? Was I wrong in calling him "this guy"?

    I get the idea it's similar to NIN, it's Trent's music but on tour a full band. If you are seeing Caribou live, it's Dan's project but he hires a touring band to play with him.

    Dan Snaith is the main "this guy" (does all the songwriting/recording), but he's got a full band that tours with them (whether or not it's the same people, i don't know).

    one of my favorite things about a Caribou show is how all the bandmembers contribute randomly to the cacophony of sounds and when Dan and the other drummer "duel" (Dan plays various instruments, mostly guitar/synths, during their live shows).

    you'll see Psyco.

    these should get everyone excited (all Andorra jams):










    (some good drum dueling towards the end of this one)



    keep in mind, that their club shows (usually) have awesome, tripalicious visuals as well.
