Published Aug 31, 2010Last year, Caribou teamed up with Four Tet and members of Enon, Born Ruffians, Junior Boys and the Sun Ra Arkestra to become the Caribou Vibration Ensemble. The star-studded group performed at New York's 2009 All Tomorrow's Parties, as well as at a one-off at Toronto's Opera House. As previously reported, NYC radio station WFMU recorded some high-quality clips of the performance and talks surfaced of a proper physical release. Now, nearly a full year later, that release is finally going to see the light of day.
Billed as the Caribou Vibration Ensemble Featuring Marshall Allen, the band have self-released a double LP of the ATP performance. In addition to the vinyl, the release includes a DVD with footage of the performance. On Caribou's website, the band write, "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 record will not be available in stores. Instead, it will only be available at Caribou shows. Fortunately, most of the world will have a chance to see Caribou and pick up the release this fall. All of the tour dates can be seen here.
