Pitchfork Day 2: Caribou

"Now Our Hearts Are Wrapped Up Tight Again"
We caught a little bit of Titus Andronicus and Jay Reatard, but Caribou really opened up Saturday's festivities for us. And what a way to open it. Dan Snaith and comrades absolutely tore threw a euphoric set of Caribou/Manitoba staples, including Andorra favorites "Melody Day" and "She's The One." While technical difficulties plagued their sound check and rain loomed over head, all was made good by "Crayons", which transported the audience to some place far, far away where drums feed the rhythm of the human heart. {Ed Note: This show kicked off a weekend full of drums, drums and more drums.}
