(Daniel Victor Snaith)
[1978-…], Dundas, ON, Canada |
|Daniel Victor “Dan” Snaith is a Canadian composer, musician and recording artist who has performed under the stage names Caribou, Manitoba and Daphni.
Snaith originally recorded under the stage name Manitoba, but after being threatened with a lawsuit by Richard “Handsome Dick” Manitoba, formerly of punk band The Dictators, Snaith changed his performance name to Caribou. Snaith’s previous full-length albums were then re-released under the new moniker, and The Milk of Human Kindness was released in 2005 by Domino. Snaith said that the situation was “like The Smiths suing John Smith or something”.
Caribou’s 2007 album Andorra won the 2008 Polaris Music Prize, and his DJ-influenced 2010 album Swim was on the 2010 Polaris Music Prize shortlist. In June 2013, Snaith’s studio album, Jiaolong, released under the moniker Daphni, was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.
In December 2011, Caribou curated the All Tomorrow’s Parties “Nightmare Before Christmas” festival in Minehead, England, alongside co-curators Battles and Les Savy Fav.
Caribou’s 2014 album Our Love received the IMPALA Album of the Year Award.
Good session! Enjoy!
