Recommended Natural Trip Sept. 28 2005
By James Becker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This new record from former Manitoba involvee Dan Snaith is a relatively short, naturalistic trip. The track titles, artwork, and music evoke usually-innocent pastel mind-wanderings, complete with background saturation and effects. Several of the tracks are short interludes which despite their short length are very enjoyable to listen to. "Subotnick", "Bees", and "Hello Hammerheads" employ sparse vocals which lend the album a more personal feel. "Lord Leopard" employs a straight hip hop beat to carry a nearly Baroque harpsichord melody, resulting in an ironically catchy product. Other standout tracks include "Drumheller" which is likewise a very short track but is calm and evoking with its soft melodies and unique sixteen beat. "Pelican Narrows" is perhaps the best track, utilizing Four Tet-esque analog acoustics to create a fuzzy, warm, happy feeling.

Perhaps the only negative aspect of THE MILK OF HUMAN KINDNESS is its relatively short length. However, it is certainly a well-worthy purchase.

Awesome May 3 2005
By ander - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am truly amazed at what Dan Snaith has put down. He is one brilliant man. Up In Flames may have been a rock meets electronica affair but Milk of Human Kindness is electronica that's got a bit of funk, folk and FM.

This album starts off with a fast moving romp that will probably be the closest thing Dan will actually get to recording a dance track. If Madonna had done some experimental drugs when she was recording Ray of Light, it might have sounded like this. It then takes some bends and turns touching on 50's and 60's doo-wop, 70's funk, 80's hip-hop.... It's really a journey through a lot of musical styles. It puts a really interesting spin on the music as does his hypnotic Beck-like vocals.

This is definitely one of the best this year. All the songs are great but the standout tracks are YETI, LORD LEOPARD, BEES, DRUMHELLER (a small town in the heart of the Alberta badlands where the dinosaurs roamed - very cool landscape up there) and PELICAN NARROWS.

This disc rocks. May 7 2005
By Thaddeus - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The smooth lounge-like electronics of Manitoba's first album, "Start Breaking My Heart" gave way to beats with a harder edge and more potential dance-floor use on the accompanying EP, "Give'r". The shift was an exciting one, but didn't foreshadow the complete revision in sound that the next album "Up in Flames" was. While the influence of psychedelic rock was heavy, it was laced with the laborious attention of the laptop artist/producer, producing a beautiful piece of ear-candy. (I initially gave "Up in Flames" a tepid review that I now regret posting, FYI.)

With this new album, Snaith has closed the circle, bringing back the hip-hop and dance aspects of "Give'r" while reinvigorating the folk-rock with clearer vocals and more live instrumentation. One of the things that I was disappointed with in the previous record was the lack of variation throughout the album, but here that problem has disappeared. The presence of some pretty damn funky interludes helps to split apart the spaced-out folk tunes into more discreet chunks. While there is still plenty of sprawling wall-of-sound rock, the mix is tighter and the song structures more focused. I've compared this band to the Beta Band and Beck before, but now it is clear that the torch that those two have dropped has been picked up by Caribou. This is his best album, yet, in my opinion.

By the way, the live show that this band puts on is blistering. I mean BLISTERING, they rock out and have great animations. That's why I listen to this record very loudly.

A total mind blow Jan. 16 2006
By L. H. Lohnes - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This music has no boundries or categories. It's almost Debussy like in it's expansiveness and seeming lack of traditional structure. You just have to check it out and get pulled in like a vortex.

I saw Caribou as an opening band recently and the live show is nothing short of jaw droppingly amazing. They totally blew the headliner off the stage and into the next state (and the headliner is one of my all time favorite bands). Don't miss Dan's Caribou when they come to your town, unreal.

If Mozart were alive, he and Dan Snaith would be pals June 9 2005
By Mike Smith - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What can I even say about an album this terrific? You have to buy it. Buy it! Buy it, buy it, buy it! Caribou is the best thing in electronic music today, and one of the best things in music in general. Those who hear Caribou, love Caribou. Buy it, buy it, buy it. If you like electronica, buy it. If you like classical, and are open to the idea that the master composers--the Mozarts, the Beethovens--if they were alive today, would make use of today's instruments, buy it. If you like rock, folk, pop, buy it. If you like hearing things done with sound that have never been done with sound, if you like music so inventive it makes you laugh out loud, buy it. If you like music so complex you hear something new in it every time you play it, buy it. Buy it, and then put all your money in a box, and send it to Dan "Mantiba/Caribou" Snaith now. Listen to this album, and listen well, and I know you'll agree he deserves it.

Note: I especially recommend listening to this album (or any Caribou album) while driving on a winding dirt road late at night. It seems made for it.
