Courtney Barnett / The Julie Ruin / Run the Jewels
Waxahatchee seems all grown up since its 2013 appareance at Pitchfork. Back then, crowd chatter and indifferent fans drowned out a majority of leader Katie Crutchfield's lyrics on the small stage. Here, Crutchfield receives support from a backing quartet that adds muscle, volume and thickness to her musings. In her world, holding back emotions is for sissies. Framed by fuzz-rock and elastic pop arrangments, she navigates gray areas of romantic relationships and insecurities of getting older. Her deceptively sweet voice relays the worries, wishes and misgivings common to almost every 20-and 30-something. For 45 minutes, Waxahatchee functions as a personal diary, complete with smart analogies that spare no one blame, including Crutchfield herself. [Bob Gendron for Chicago Tribune]You've seen day 1, more day 1 and day 2, and here's pictures of the third and final day of the 2015 Pitchfork Music Festival. This time we got Chance the Rapper, Todd Terje & the Olsens, Run the Jewels, PC Music's AG Cook, Caribou, Clark, Jamie xx, How to Dress Well, Courtney Barnett, Perfume Genius, Madlib & Freddie Gibbs, The Julie Ruin, Waxahatchee, Mourn, Viet Cong, SIngle Mothers and Bitchin Bajas.

Caribou's terrific 2014 album Our Love has just been given an expanded digital edition with seven remixes, including "Second Chance" by Cyril Hahn and two different versions of "Mars" by Head High, all of which can be streamed below. Says Caribou's Dan Snaith:
The Cyril Hahn remix is a beautiful ethereal slowed-down version of 'Second Chance' and came about in the way that many of my favorite remixes from this album did: Cyril made a bootleg mix from the album version which caught my attention and I loved it and sent him the parts to finish for the full released version...Full tracklist for the expanded Our Love is below.
...The Head High remixes illustrate the prowess of one of house and techno's don's - Germany's René Pawlowitz aka Head High aka Shed aka Wax aka WK7 aka Evil Fred aka The Traveller aka Wax aka... I've been hammering Head High's tunes in my DJ sets (alongside everyone else) for years. He's infallible - almost inhumanly so. His tracks reliably pulverize everything in their path.
Having played two sold out shows at Webster Hall last year, Caribou will be back in NYC during the warmer months to play a SummerStage show. (SummerStage is announcing it's 2015 slate one performer a day all this month.) Date and venue have yet to be announced. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Caribou's SummerStage show happens August 6 at East River Park. It's a free show
All announced dates, plus those remix streams and live video of Caribou playing "Can't Do Without You" and "Back Home" on Later with Carson Daly, below...

photo::: Caribou Vibration Ensembe @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
You may remember that Caribou toured as the Caribou Vibration Ensemble back in 2009 which featured Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Enon/Braniac's John Schmersal, Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab and more. CVE released a live album in 2010 and have now released a second, this time coming from two shows in December 2011 in Belgium and London with a slightly different lineup of the Ensemble, most notably minus minus Allen. You can stream that in full below and they'll have vinyl copies on tour this spring.
Meanwhile, there's also a live video of Caribou Vibration Ensemble from their ATP UK performance in 2011 that does feature Marshall Allen and the other folks on the live LP (ATP UK was just a few days later). That video was shot and directed by Savages drummer Fay Milton and you can watch that below as well.
As you may know Milton and the rest of Savages are in NYC this month for a nine-show club residency. Marshall Allen, meanwhile, will be here with Sun Ra Arkestra for a free show at the Seaport's inflatable venue Sugarcube on January 31.
