It's no surprise that our email inboxes are hit with hourly bombardments of publicists' flashy attempts to garner our attention. Every so often, there's a diamond in the rough. We recently received a personal email from Brad Weber, Caribou's
drummer, who sent us a sampling of his side project, Pick a Piper
The track "Lucid in Fjords," which features the vocals of Ryan McPhun from The Ruby Suns
, immediately caught our attention. Weber indicated that there will be a Pick a Piper full-length debut released in 2013, but couldn't go into details about the full list of collaborators. Until then, we'll just continue to enjoy this solid and whimsical track.
