Quoted from Caribou’s twitter
“In September 2009 the Flaming Lips invited us to play at the All Tomorrow’s Parties New York festival which they curated. We wanted this show to be something special so we put together a 15 piece band including all of our friends – Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Koushik Ghosh (Koushik), a five piece horn section, four drummers and Sun Ra arkestra band leader and legend Marshall Allen.
The show was something of a dream come true for us and so we’re very excited to announce that we will be releasing a limited double vinyl recording of the concert. The album will also come with a DVD video recording of the show. This record will only be available at our upcoming concerts and not available in stores.”
Coming off one of this year’s most celebrated electronic albums, Caribou have yet another release in the pipeline: Caribou Vibration Ensemble featuring Marshall Allen, a recording of their set from this year’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New York.
In the studio, Caribou is mostly a one man show— Canadian producer Dan Snaith—but at ATP NY the outfit expanded into a 15-piece ensemble. In addition to Snaith, the lineup included Marshall Allen of Sun Ra Arkestra, Kieren Hebden (AKA Four Tet), psychedelic hip-hop artist Koushik and Luke Lalonde of Born Ruffians, plus five horn players and four drummers.
The limited edition live album consists of two records plus a DVD, and won’t be available in stores—anyone keen to get their hands on it will have to attend one of Caribou’s upcoming shows. Kicking off this Friday in the Netherlands, the band’s extensive fall and winter tour packs in more than 50 dates across Europe and the US.
