Editors’ Notes

On Andorra, Canadian Dan Snaith's loops and layers of digital delights create a warm cocoon of sound, and the end result is so engaging, the sound so massive and enveloping, its hard to believe that Caribou isn’t a five-piece ensemble with an endless studio budget. First up is the astounding “Melody Day,” with Snaith’s delicate vocals soaring and swooping, carried on gusts of reverby guitars, rushing cymbals, and galloping drums, with flourishes of synthesized sounds like flute and organ. “Sandy” follows next, with sublimely huge, tribal drum beats juxtaposed against jingling bells, whooshing synths, electric piano, and heavy layers of Snaith’s falsetto, resulting in four minutes of psych-pop perfection. The middle tracks are more blissful pop-under-the-blacklight creations, and then Snaith takes a sharp detour to a different time:  “Sundialing” takes us for a spin on Kraftwerk’s autobahn, unblinking rhythms moving as fast as you dare drive. On “Irene,” Snaith is having fun in the studio, playing with space and sound in an unabashedly electronic game; and on the nine-minute closer, “Niobe,” Snaith’s falsetto takes it down a few notches to better complement the sprawling, darker Krautrock feel of the piece.

'60s Harmonies Hit The Autobahn

Caribou continues to add more vocals and organic sounds to his computer pop, peaking here on "Melody Day," which sounds like the Zombies or the Electric Prunes' "Mass" being stormtroopered by Krautrock. Essentially, you get blissed-out harmonies over rollicking drums.


An absolute master stroke. This harnesses the perfect blend of 60's brit-pop harmonies, with modern production technique.  It's a breathtaking listen from start to finish.  This is among Snaith's finest work, if not his finest - highly recommended. 


This is one of those records that makes you so very happy to be alive, and to be able to hear. Each track is so full of curiousity. I swear I just morphed into a firefly while listening to this! Download the Remix by Four Tet of "Melody Day" and add it to the end of this release. Simply gorgeous.


Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Dan Snaith's early recordings as Manitoba underlined his status among the chattering electronic classes as one of the brightest talents to emerge during the early 2000s. Having already proved himself master of the sublime with his 2000 debut EP, People Eating Fruit, the Canadian's subsequent Paul's Birthday EP opened him out even further. After moving to London, he released an excellent second album, Up in Flames (2003), that saw him become a darling of critics. One year later, however, Snaith was...
