Suddenly. If you ask us, that’s the title of one of last year’s best albums – and the first one in six years from Caribou, the Ontario-born producer and composer whose real name is Dan Snaith. Caribou brings back sweet memories to each Way Out West devotee, from his show at Park Lane in 2010 right up to the triumphant dance party held at the Linné stage in 2015 (the same year he also performed at the festival with his other musical project, Daphni). We’re convinced it’ll be at least as memorable this summer when he’ll play at Way Out West 2022.
Dan Snaith is someone who records music pretty much every day. This means he has collected quite an amount of Caribou material since the last time we heard from him. It’s been said he had more than 900 drafts to go through while putting together what became “Suddenly”. The result, the 12 track long colorful and eclectic album, has left no one disappointed.
