Kieran Hebden and Dan Snaith have, over the years, forged a true friendship which goes well beyond their respective career. Often seen playing at the same events, and found within musical range of each other, it is no surprise to see their record labels publishing similar projects within weeks of each other.
.
Both Everything Ecstatic and Marino collect a series of previously unavailable videos, yet the concept between each release is slightly different. While Everything Ecstatic is in fact an audio-visual version of the album he released earlier this year, with contributions from Ed Holdsworth, Tom Kemp, Sam Jeffers, Dan Wilde, Jodie Mack and Hebden himself, Marino collects all the visuals created by Dublin-based animator Delicious 9 for Caribou’s recent live shows, spanning most of his Up In Flames and The Milk Of Human Kindness albums.
.
Everything Ecstatic introduces a video for each of the ten tracks of Kieran Hedben’s last album, taking the project to a whole new level. If none of the films truly add to the music as such, they however provide an interesting new layer on which to experience this piece of work. At times, the music becomes almost second to the videos, while at others, especially on Dan Wilde’s Smile Around The Face, Jason Evans’s Sun Drums And Soil, Ed Holdsworth’s wonderfully poetic High Five or You Were There With Me, directed by Kieran Hedben’s and Kathryn Bint.
.
Caribou’s Marino offers a slightly different angle on the music. All created by the same studio as visual support to his live set, these videos cover a wide visual scope, ranging from the truly mesmerising to the hilarious. Although created to fit the music in a very special context, these sixteen videos form an interesting suite of varied inspiration. Using a mixture of real images and animations, Delicious 9 offer their interpretation of Snaith’s psychedelic musical scope and give each one of the sixteen tracks presented here a new layer of fantasy.
.
These two DVDs come with an extra CD each, featuring previously unreleased material and, in the case of Everything Ecstatic, an extended version of Turtle Turtle Up. Similar in concept, these two DVDs provide a surprising new dimension to the music of both Four Tet and Manitoba, and, although not essential in essence, they are likely to please fans.
