  Lord of the Final Leopard



Caribou - "Yeti"

Caribou - "A Final Warning"

Caribou - "Lord Leopard"


In my eyes Caribou (formely Manitoba) is a perfect mix of the Olivia Tremor Control and Hood. Thats about all I want to describe them as and see if you all agree. I saw them as Manitoba open for someone (shit, Hood maybe) and the three members could achieve a sound that a 10 person band couldnt, and two of these guys were playing drums! Dan Snaith is the head guy and pretty much runs the show and does all the writing, which baffels me due to the complexity of the songs.

These three songs are pretty indicitive of the album. The drum fill when the drums finally come in during "YETI" blow my mind every time and could vie for the best drum fill ever! Somehow these guys have captured the sound of the Beatles early drums, really tight sounding - wet warm and huge at the same time. OTC could do that too. The second song could fit on a NEU! outtake record. The third sounds like something Fairmount Fair would write. So go figure. These guys are fucking great and their album is worth buying without a doubt.

You can purchase their album through Leaf Records - here.
