Last September, Canadian band Caribou was invited by the Flaming Lips to play at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New York, which they curated. So in acclamation of this monumental invitation, the guys from Caribou recruited an all-star line-up to play along side them on stage. This included Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Koushik Ghosh (Koushik), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), a five piece horn section and four drummers making it a total of 15 people on stage for the performance. This does seem to be one unmissable show and lucky for all of us that couldn’t be in New York at that time, Caribou have now announced that they will be releasing Caribou Vibration Ensemble Featuring Marshall Allen – a limited double vinyl recording of the concert which will also come with a DVD video recording of the show. This record will unfortunately not be available in stores but can be purchased at a Caribou concert near you over the next few months. And for us Aussies, no dates have been announced as yet, but it has been confirmed that Caribou will be touring early next year with good friends, Four Tet!
