Caribou – Bowls

What happens when you give a Ph.D. in mathematics a computer, drum kit, guitar, bass and synthesizer? If his name is Daniel Victor Snaith from Ontario, Canada — you get an electronica band named Caribou. Psychedelic pop numbers with an up-tempo dance beat with an unpredictability that draws you into wanting to hear more — that’s Caribou.

Snaith tours the world with a live band, backed by large visual projections to enhance the “sonic mood”. The cut included here: “Bowls” from the April 2010 LP release: “Swim” — allows a brilliant example of musical progressions incorporated in Snaith’s style — positive without being syrupy or repetitious. Enjoy.
