That's My Jam! Junior Boys Remix Caribou

Last month, Canadian producer Dan Snaith released his latest album as Caribou, Swim. It was a highly anticipated record, coming three long years after the last Caribou full-legnth. The single "Odessa" made the rounds earlier, showing up online months before Swim came out. The single is a warbled, upbeat number with a buoyant bassline, varied percussion elements, and Snaith's voice softly delivering the vocal hooks.

Now "Odessa" is coming out as a proper release, with remixes from Nite Jewel, David Wrench, and, shared below, Junior Boys. Junior Boys are fellow Canadians Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus, and their take on "Odessa" sounds straight off their sophomore album So This Is Goodbye. Staccato synth melodies match up with thick disco bass, lovelorn lyrics sung by a subtle falsetto, and plenty of sound effects. It all comes together on top of a solid dance beat, and stands as another example of the Junior Boys' talent for slick electronic pop music.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
