Interviews

Dec 02, 2014

It has now been 10 years since punk rock has-been "Handsome Dick" Manitoba forced Dan Snaith to drop his Manitoba moniker and rebrand himself as Caribou. It's difficult to know what effect, if any, that rebranding has had on the evolution of his creative persona, but it has taken Snaith 12 years and six studios albums to get to the point where he feels comfortable enough to insert himself into his music as its central character.  More

Caribou – Hiding in Plain Sight

“I wanted to put my own life—my personal life—[in the record] and obfuscate what I was saying as little as possible.”

Dec 01, 2014

Though he doesn't sound like a man who lacks confidence, Dan Snaith says he has spent much of his career hiding. Lacking confidence in his voice, he spent his early records hiding his vocals under layers of reverb and densely-textured psychedelia. More

Caribou

Darkness on the Dance Floor

Apr 02, 2010

Though the last 10 years have done much to erode the stylistic divide between dance music and the innumerable rock and pop variants, the perception persists that music made for dance floors isn't quite as serious or thoughtful as music written for headphones. Lyrics, after all, are secondary in dance music; often they're the dressing for arrangements designed to bypass your brain and go straight to your body. And despite the fact that Caribou's Dan Snaith started out making dance music, the sort patented by IDM superstars Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin more than anything crafted specifically for the dance floor, he spent the majority of the last decade carefully honing his skills as a bedroom pop auteur, building dazzling towers of sound out of gorgeously cascading melodies, thundering avalanches of drums, and softly unfurling vocals. Having taken his brand of pocket psychedelia to its logical conclusion with 2007' Andorra, Snaith has now returned to his beat-making roots with Swim, this time aiming to both move the pulse of the club with his experimental grooves and capture minds with lyrics about divorce, old age, and loneliness.  More

Merge

Oct 15, 2014

What was most surprising about Dan Snaith's 2010 album Swim was that it was brilliant and predictable. Really, the sun-setting grooves and hypnotic rhythms of his finest moment as Caribou to date were always going to happen. More
