Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Manitoba includes: Dan Smith, Koushik Ghosh.
  • Originally issued in 2003--before veteran punk rocker Handsome Dick Manitoba forced the Canadian electronica artist Dan Snaith (aka Caribou) to drop the Manitoba nom de plume--UP IN FLAMES was lauded as one of the finest albums of the year by many critics. Stirring strains of pop and noise-rock into a My Bloody Valentine-like swirl, Snaith offers up one dreamy, disarming track after another, with sly melodies and potent beats fading in and out of the mix, as on the shimmering opener, "I've Lived on a Dirt Road All My Life," and the whimsical, child-like "Skunks." Surprisingly warm and organic, this record laid the groundwork for Snaith's even more impressive follow-up, THE MILK OF HUMAN KINDNESS, his first studio album as Caribou. (Note: The 2006 reissue of UP IN FLAMES features a bonus disc of non-album tracks.)
Professional Reviews
Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #65 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"

The Wire (3/03, p.71) - "...The music is suffused with stray frequencies and swirling clouds of harmonics....[The music] approaches the psychedelic grandeur of Spiritualized or Mercury Rev at their finest while still offering a wealth of carefully placed sonic detail..."

CMJ (04/14/03, p.9) - "...A slew of instruments and sound effects are employed to build this multi-coated effort, including theremin, guitars, dog barking, handclaps and even glockenspiel..."
