Dan Snaith has been making music under the Caribou moniker since 2004 and left his mark at SummerStage in 2015 performing to a full capacity crowd; his 2010 breakout Swim remains a classic in the sample-heavy sphere of electronic music. Those early records were loose and, at times, chaotic; in recent years his music sounds more streamlined, if no less compelling. His latest album, 2020’s Suddenly, brings a clarity of focus to Snaith’s vision, a gentle, emotive suite of compositions that doesn’t waste a single note. He’s joined by the Colombian-American artist Ela Minus, who got her start drumming in punk bands before finding herself in a suitcase full of drum machines and synthesizers, with a sound that takes left turns from bubblegum to goth and everywhere in between. They are joined by DJ, producer, and band leader of Conclave, Toribio, on the decks.
