Caribou @ Webster Hall, NYC 11/14/14

Q&A: Caribou On The Inspirations, Experiences, And Complex Emotions That Define Our Love

When Dan Snaith named Caribou's new album Our Love, he knew people might initially picture some kind of fairytale sentiment. But nothing is ever that simple, least of all love, and Snaith not only knows that, he's used that complexity as his main inspiration.

Is Festival EDM Dying, Or Is It Just Getting Interesting?

If you perform with a giant light-up mouse helmet on your head, chances are you understand how to grab people's attention. Whether Twitter-feuding with Arcade Fire, describing a rival DJ/producer as "McDonald's," or admitting that entertainers like himself mostly just press play on stage, Joel Thomas Zimmerman has repeatedly proven to be a… More »

The influence of Snaith's buddy Burial… More »
