Dan Snaith, the man behind the massive ambient-rock-turned-indie-electronica band Caribou, has just released a live album chronicling his live touring show “Caribou Vibrations Ensemble” in 2011. For these special live shows, Snaith put together an all-star live band capable of creating a one-of-a-kind sonic landscape and a truly unique live show experience. His 2011 “CVE” tour and further live album titled CVE Live 2011 from the tour features artists such as Four Tet, Sinkane, James Holden, and more in his 11-piece band.
The half-hour album features three tracks from his live tour. “Bowls” and “Sun” were recorded at his show in Ghent, Belgium, while “Ahmed, Colin, James, Kieran, Kyle, Rob and Steve” was recorded the next night in London. The album can be downloaded today via Bandcamp, and limited edition LP copies are in stores starting January 19th. Snaith has announced that all proceeds from the live album will go to the nonprofit organization Gendered Intelligence, “in memory of our dear friend Julia Brightly.”
