Dan Snaitch, aka Caribou, the Canadian indie / folk / electronic artist who turns out music for over 15 artist has delivered something no one has ever attempted to do. A 1,000 song playlist. And that is not an exaggeration; he has compiled 1000 songs from past and present, with no rules or guidlines, other than being a good song. Ranging from rap to classic rock to all varieties of indie and alternative rock, it will be impossible to be bored listening to this .
Here is his words about the playlist:
The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I've been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I've been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I've collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.
I'm sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.
I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.
I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,
