Caribou — Suddenly (Feb. 28th, 2020)             Caribou — Suddenly (Feb. 28th, 2020)
■  Venue: Apr 23 — Prague, CZ — Forum Karlín (WITH KAITLYN AURELIA SMITH). Dan Snaith (recordings, live), Ryan Smith (live), Brad Weber (live),  John Schmersal (live)
■  „„Suddenly odkazuje na okamžiky dramatických a nečekaných změn, ke kterým dochází v triangulačních bodech jakéhokoli života a v jakékoli rodině — univerzálních tématech, která vás chytí mimo dohled a změní váš život v srdečním tepu,“ vysvětluje Snaith. „You And I“ začíná warblingovými klávesy a filtrovanou bicí sadou, měkkými falsetto vokály, dominující nad aquatickou instrumentací. „Home“ začíná block~rockovými breaky a vrstvami rozostřených vokálních vzorků, prosluněnou kytarou a dechy, což ve vašem případě snad oživí večírek. „Never Come Back“ se zdá být odpovědí na pokus o oživení tranzu v posledních několika letech, rozmístěné vokální vzorky a epické smyčce, umožňující uvážlivou a promyšlenou pozornost ‚klišé~excesů‘ daného žánru.

■  SIMPLY PUT, SUDDENLY IS FAMILIAR AND SURPRISING AT ONCE. It’s Dan Snaith’s fifth album under his Caribou alias, which is known for live performances that merge psychedelia and left~field dance influences into a heady, vivid combination. He’s an incredible DJ and master producer as well, with 3 electronic~based albums released under the Daphni alias. Suddenly is the closest merging of these two identities yet — songs shuffle and morph in unexpected ways, drastically chopped~and~screwed samples crash in from nowhere. “Suddenly refers to the moments of dramatic and unexpected change that occur at points in any life and within any family — universal themes that catch you off guard and change your life in a heartbeat.”, explains Snaith. “You And I” begins with warbling keys and a filtered drumkit, soft falsetto vocals over aquatic instrumentation. “Home” begins with block~rocking breaks and layers of out of focus vocal samples, sunny guitar and brass flourishes liven up the party. “Never Come Back” seems to be a response to the attempted trance revival of the past few years or so, pitched up vocal samples and epic strings make for a thoughtful consideration of the genre’s cliched excesses.   Nice~sounding half~speed mastered LP housed in spot~gloss finished jacket w/ download code.
