Caribou sneaks out tour-only double LP

If you're planning on attending one of Caribou's upcoming tour dates, you might want to check out the merchandise table as Dan Snaith has put together an enticing tour-only release.
Entitled Caribou Vibration Ensemble featuring Marshall Allen, the double vinyl plus DVD package is a splendid document of Caribou's All Tomorrow's Parties performance last year which involved an expanded line-up bolstered with Sun Ra Arkestra saxophonist Marshall Allen, Kieran Hebden and Snaith's nutty Dundas pal Koushik among others. It looks like that Polaris Prize money has been well spent.

According to Mr. Snaith:
“In September 2009 the Flaming Lips invited us to play at the All Tomorrow’s Parties New York festival which they curated. We wanted this show to be something special so we put together a 15 piece band including all of our friends – Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Koushik Ghosh (Koushik), a five piece horn section, four drummers and Sun Ra arkestra band leader and legend Marshall Allen.
The show was something of a dream come true for us and so we’re very excited to announce that we will be releasing a limited double vinyl recording of the concert. The album will also come with a DVD video recording of the show. This record will only be available at our upcoming concerts and not available in stores.”
