Four Tet – “Pinnacles” & Daphni (Caribou) – “Ye Ye”

Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden and Caribou’s Daniel Snaith are planning a split vinyl release, to be out “soon” via Hebden’s Text Records. Snaith’s track will be under his Daphni name (when I talked to him for a Progress Report, he had just decided to fold some Daphni songs into his next Caribou album, Swim). BBC… More »

The xx – “VCR (Four Tet Remix)”

Keiren Hebden created a 9-minute layered, electro-danceable version of Mercury Prize winners the xx’s “VCR.” He should’ve called it “DVD.”… More »

Four Tet – “Angel Echoes (Caribou Remix)”

A week or so ago Kieran Hebden remixed the Acorn’s “Restoration.” Here, Four Tet’s There Is Love In You’s glistening opener “Angel Echoes” goes under the knife. In the April/May of 2003 I remember Daniel Snaith/Caribou making a splash via Manitoba’s Up In Flames, Hebden following suit with Rounds. They seem to do that a… More »

The Acorn – “Restoration (Four Tet Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

I can (and have) been as cynical as anyone about the transparently promotional aspects of the glut of remixes sweeping through music sites — they serve a necessary purpose in the present MP3 economy, no doubt, but often these redos have little merit beyond extending brand awareness in an information saturated space. Then there are… More »

Pantha Du Prince – “Stick To My Side (Four Tet Remix)” (Feat. Panda Bear)

Wisely, Pantha Du Prince is mining every last bit of mileage from his Hype Machine chart topper, the Panda Bear-powered  “Stick To My Side.” Compliments of Rough Trade, the track’s tagcloud gets expanded via this remix from Four Tet, whose got his own 2010 case-study in excellence with There Is Love In You. Kieran’s turned… More »

New Four Tet – “Plastic People”

New Four Tet – “Love Cry”

For “Love Cry,” Kieran Hebden gives us a percussive nine minute forward-thrusting dance track piloted by ghostly crate-digger female vocals and enough bass to earn its title (a title that’s repeated endlessly throughout and sometimes sounds like “buff bride”). The song cycles through a rainbow of moody electronic sounds, too, hence the muted color wheel… More »

Green Man Festival 2009 In Photos

The eco-friendly Green Man took over Brecon Beacons, Wales this past weekend with a heavy dose of Americana: from midwestern folkies (Bon Iver, Wilco, Andrew Bird) to wailing east coast electropoppers (Animal Collective, Gang Gang Dance) and reinvigorated psych legends (Roky Erikson, Rodriguez) the lineup wasn’t significantly different than, say, Lollapalooza. But Green Man stand… More »

New Burial & Four Tet – “Moth” & “Wolf Cub”

Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, is all about collaboration, so it’s not a surprise that he teamed with shadowy English dubstep crossover Burial, aka William Bevan. The results, “Moth” and “Wolf Cub,” arrive in a black sleeve and pressed onto a slab of 12″ vinyl with a black label. The lack of information’s a nice… More »

New Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid – “Lyman Place”

The new escalating Hebden and Reid track’s a huge sonic liftoff. Makes sense: “Lyman Place” is the opener from Mr. Four Tet and Mr. Good Drummer’s collaborative Big Apple homage NYC (11/18 via Domino), which follows 2007’s Tongues. More »

New Fridge – “Clocks”

It’s been six years in the making, but it will take just one listen of The Sun to get you raving. Though its release is still a month off, Fridge — the post-rock trio that’s proven to be a supergroup of sorts (comprising Kieran Hebden a.k.a. Four Tet, Adem, and Sam Jeffers) — have crafted… More »
