Caribou remixes Oh No Ono

Danish art-pop band Oh No Ono get remixed by the mighty Caribou, who turns their album opener "Eleanor Speaks" into a fantastic slice of shuffling, four-to-the-floor techno complete with Caribou's keen ear for arrangements and ear-tickling sound. They will be making their second US trip in a few months with a few appearances at SXSW and shows in NYC right after. Their excellent album "Eggs" is out now on Friendly Fire Recordings in the US and the Leaf Label in the UK/Europe.
Oh No Ono is an experimental pop quintet from the tiny Danish town of Aalborg. Their music, intricate and other-worldly, defies conventions and expectations (and some-times gravity). The ten dense, hypertextured sour-sweet- sad opuses found on their US debut album, Eggs, are truly breathtaking to behold; the band creates bewitching pop symphonies that unfold themselves more with each successive listen.

Dan Snaith and Caribou recently announced their new North American tour dates in support of the upcoming album Swim, coming on April 20th via Merge Records. He's using new technology to mix the music and do new things in the live setting, so he can integrate electronics, visuals and sound into one complete and tight experience. Caribou plays in Austin @emosaustin on May 16th http://bit.ly/dzgiyB
