Daphni & Owen Pallett - "Julia" / "Tiberius"

Daphni Owen Pallett

It's been a while since we heard anything from weird-club maestro Dan Snaith from any of his single-monikered projects Manitoba, Caribou, or Daphni, but he's back in business in grand style - for a 12" release via his own label Jiaolong, he's recruited the violinist, composer and pop music theoristOwen Pallett to help out on two new Daphni jams, "Julia" and "Tiberius." You can listen to both songs now; they put Snaith's knack for full-sounding, rave-y minimalism on full display, and Pallett's discordant-but-lovely violin additions will send chills up your spine. Check it out - still no word on a physical release date, but we'll keep you posted.
