Caribou - Caribou Vibration Ensemble [2010]

This is splendid.
Caribou, primarily known for his minimalist, psychedlic electronica, brings his A-game to his live shows.
In this limited, vinyl-only release, he is joined by four drummers, Sun Ra's horn section (including the great Marshall Allen!), and guitars, keyboards (someone involved with Fourtet, I believe), and just about anything else that'll fit on stage.
While his songs maintain their familiar structure, where they were once sparse and meditative, they are now full, heavy, raucous, and exuberant.
Barnowl is a personal favorite, with the horn section supplying melodic depth before breaking into sheets of cries, yells, shrieks, and the type of timbres that only an experienced free jazz horn section can supply.
