Four years have passed since these tracks were recorded at various Caribou live shows in Belgium and the UK, now Dan Snaith is selling them for a good cause. What makes this EP stand out is the line-up involved in the Caribou Vibration Ensemble: Four Tet and James Holden on synthesizers, Ahmed “Sinkane” Gallab on drums, a three piece brass section, flutist, and Dan Snaith himself on vocals, synth and electric guitar.
Available on Bandcamp for $3 (or more) with all proceeds going to Gendered Intelligence.
Following Virgo Four‘s stunning Resurrection box set, Rush Hour has released a first set of remixes this week. This is the A-side from Dan Snaith’s Caribou project, the flipside holds a remix by Hunee and the original version.
If you don’t have a copy of Resurrection in your shelf yet, let us also remind you of this megamix by Legowelt, made of nothing but tracks from that album.
Got some good mixtapes piled up, just the right thing you might be looking for in time for the weekend.

Coming from Video Marsh collective, which was already responsible for the video to Odessa, the latest from Caribou has landed on several video sites on the internet.
The track is, of course, taken from last year’s Swim album. For a different twist of that, check out this semi-official remix album by Altrice.
Here’s a nice little episode on how things can work out thanks to the internet. In short, the story goes like this: producer takes part in the Caribou remix-contest and eventually wins. The producer in question goes by the name of Altrice, kept in touch with Caribou‘s Dan Snaith and asked if he (or she?) could remix the rest of last year’s Swim album.
