After Caribou's totally amazing first visit to Aberdeen, Dan Snaith has been touring the world & playing festivals, He completed a mammoth 50date tour of North America, played Scandinavia, Europe, Japan, China, Scandanavia & will finish off by doing a select eighteen date tour of the UK. If you missed his show last time, do not miss it this time. Universal acclaim by all who attended. Jim owner of The Tunnels "by far the best show in The Tunnels so far" an interesting music regular "the visuals were best I have every seen" & well worth the entrance cost alone, however the music with the duel drummers was just amazing; no gig will be as good this year". this is what they said the 1st time Caribou played in Aberdeen

The Russian Futurists

When The Russian Futurists' internationally acclaimed debut, The Method of Modern Love, was released in 2001, bold, unashamed confessions of romance and vulnerability were rare commodities in pop -- whether above or underground. The Method of Modern Love is one of the most melodically seductive and exhilarating records of recent times UNCUT Magazine

Its follow-up, 2003's Let's Get Ready to Crumble, consolidated Hart's reputation as a writer who, seemingly without effort, subverted the conventions of the love song, creating miniature electronic epics that cost a shoestring but sounded as if they were spun from gold. The big analogue sound, distorted drums and vocals drowning in reverb make for songs that would sound fucking great in a club VICE Magazine

But the third, most eagerly anticipated Russian Futurists album, Our Thickness, best explains its creator's prolonged absence: Hart has been making his best album to date. Comfortingly familiar and yet a quantum leap beyond its predecessors, it bears all the hallmarks of Russian Futurists recordings -- insinuating melodies, ingeniously grand low-budget arrangements, insightful words about loves lost and found -- but is fuller, wiser, sadder and giddier than before. A video is currently in the works by critically acclaimed director Matt Eastman (Five Alive Commercials) for the colossal album opener Paul Simon.

Peter Buck (REM), Jason Lee & Graham Coxon (ex BLUR) are all big fans

from Caribou's website

Im really excited to announce the release of a DVD entitled Marino collecting all the videos made by Dublin based animators Delicious 9 and featured in our live shows over the past two years. Aside from the more than 60 minutes of videos - one for almost every song from my two most recent albums The Milk Of Human Kindness and Up In Flames - Marino will also come with a bonus CD EP featuring 4 unreleased and exclusive tracks taken from the Milk of Human Kindness Sessions.

Marino will be released on Domino in North America and The Leaf Label in the rest of the world on November 1st, 2005. HOWEVER, we will be selling Marino at our upcoming shows on our tour of the UK and Ireland - almost a full month before you'll be able to get it in shops.

Caribou to Release New EP, DVD

Kati Llewellyn reports:

On November 1, Caribou (aka Dan Snaith, fka Manitoba) will dilate our minds with Marino, a DVD collection of the videos featured during his live shows. You know, all those pretty, drippy, colorful trips through alternate universes we've been enjoying over the past couple of years, while trying not to be distracted by the multiple drummers and animal masks.

In addition to a video for nearly every track on The Milk of Human Kindness and Up in Flames the DVD comes with a bonus EP containing four exclusive tracks from the Milk of Human Kindness Sessions. So I guess that kind of makes this the The Massacre: Special Edition of indie-psych-IDM.

Marino will be birthed courtesy of Domino in North American and Leaf in the rest of the world. The DVD will also be available on Caribou's current European tour, a month prior to its official release. Are the bragging rights of having this DVD early worth flying to the UK show for? Keep in mind the Miami Dolphins are a States thing. (Get it? Marino? Dan Marino? Ok, I'm going to go bang my head against the wall now.)
