Up In Flames by Caribou

Originally released under the Manitoba moniker in 2003, 'Up In Flames' was the second release from electronic musician Dan Snaith a.k.a Caribou. Often regarded as one of his finest works, the album draws upon psychedelic electronica and sun-kissed downtempo with a healthy dose of dreamy pop, and ultra-chill folktronica/indietronica. 'Up In Flames' is a warm, summery, hypnotic and uplifting album which boasts a broad appeal; indie kids, psych heads and electronic aficionados will find a lot to love in this technicolor LP.

8/10 Phil 31 December 2006
On a similiar tip is the new Manitoba album which sounds much more Fourtet-ee than the last one. If you want an indication of what yr getting it's something like Fourtet having eaten Sun Ra and then being eaten by a bloody great big My Bloody Valentine monster. That make sense? Big crashing beats, shoegazey washes and some mad sax at times 'n all. Always hated saxaphones but I can cope with it when it's mental and not making any sense at all. He's a talented guy this fella and if you like Fourtet you'd like this. Summery, uplifting, warm... makes you feel good. Like being in love but without the commitment. Up In Flames is totally lush....

10/10 James Clarke

Forget about the stupid name change. This is the unholy sound of a child's' unhinged summer. Beauty does not begin to explain the sun filled nature of this music. It's hazy, sun drenched, and most of all, it's playful. Imagine Fourtet without the glitches meeting a drugged mercury rev. This album is so bright, it could knock the black off of a goth.
