Daphni (Caribou) and Owen Pallett Team Up On Two New Songs

Electronic musician Daphni (Dan Snaith of Caribou) and Canadian renaissance man Owen Pallett have collaborated on a split single, “Julia” b/w “Tiberius,” that’s up for streaming now via FACT. They’re exactly what you would imagine: dance-worthy tracks that progress somewhat slowly, intertwining Pallett’s violin beautifully and, at times, eerily. It’s exactly what we didn’t know we needed.

If you feel like lyric-less music just needs to be loud to be experienced properly, think again. Snaith tweeted some advice on how to listen the songs at their fullest. We vote follow his word.…

That being said, Canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero released a new lyric video today on AltPress for their new song, “Clarity,” that is completely awesome. While some would probably say that this is more of a music video than a lyric video, both the scenes being played out and the lyrics running across the screen are necessary to fully appreciate what Protest …
