Love at first sight... Odessa by Caribou

The Canadian band comes back with a new opus called Swim due to be released on April 20th 2010. The first excerpt Odessa is hacked for the dancefloor. We always find the psychedelic atmosphere that characterizes them, but this time the hovering sound of Melody Day (on Andorra - August 2007) or joyful of Yeti (on The Milk Of Human Kindness - April 2005) gives way to a darker mood.
The leader Daniel Victor Snaith is quoted as saying that he chose the name Caribou while on an LSD trip with friends in the canadian wilderness. The former name was Manitoba but had to be changed in 2004 under threat of an american lawsuit by Richard "Handsome Dick" Manitoba, the stage name of The Dictators frontman Richard Blum, to Snaith's opinion it was like The Smiths suing John Smith or something...
He performs with Ryan Smith, Brad Weber and John Schmersal as the former bassist Andy Lloyd now plays with Born Ruffians.
They will play in Paris on April 23th at Point Ephémère - Paris.
