Caribou ATPNY Set Online, May Get Album Release


While rare shows are a dime a dozen at ATP, Caribou's Vibration Ensemble, which debuted at ATPNY earlier this month, was a particularly notable highlight of the weekend. Dan Snaith's newly formed orchestra, which included members of Enon, Junior Boys, Born Ruffians, Kieren Hebden of Four Tet, and Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra, amongst many others, was utterly majestic if not completely mesmerizing. Fortunately for those looking to relive the experience, the fine folks at WFMU, who were broadcasting live from ATP, and their friends at the Free Music Archive have made part of the show available for streaming online. While FMA only has a few interstellar cuts, the site notes that the "multitracks from this session are on their way to Mr. Snaith's residence, and there is talk of an official release." If released, this album will certainly go down as a moment-defining live record, ala Frampton Comes Alive, if only for the ethereal version of Four Tet's remix of "Melody Day."
