Listen Down: Caribou Tracks ‘Sister’ and ‘Never Come Back’ Remixed by Floating Points

Floating Points delivers two remixed Caribou tracks from record March release Suddenly

By Bubba Krishnamurti

Remixes of songs from the new album Suddenly have been released by Caribou in a series of recent reworking of his tracks. Floating Points, English artist Sam Shepard’s moniker, has cleverly tooled iterations of both “Never Come Back” and “Sister”. Both tracks will be released on 12″ vinyl single later this summer. Four Tet similarly released a remix of “Never Come Back.” Suddenly was released last March — just before the pandemic went into full swing. It’s a stylistically varied record layered with textural soundscapes seemingly different than previous Caribou releases. 

Discussing the creation of the remixes, Caribou , colloquially known as Dan Snaith said: “At first Sam asked for the parts for Sister – the most intimate and personal track off my album Suddenly – and reworked it using the voices of my mother and my sister that I sampled from an old cassette for my childhood – but having turned that into a hypnotic, meditative beautiful thing, he came back and asked for the parts for Never Come Back and sent me a WhatsApp of him working on the track in his studio with the caption ‘Bass drum Making my lights dim!’ and turned in a certified banger of a remix. Was I surprised Sam did two great remixes instead of one? No – anyone who knows Sam will tell you he does everything at a standard that surpasses all expectations. I was definitely happy though!’”
