You don’t need a PhD to play at Green Man, but Caribou’s Dan Snaith has one anyway, in mathematics: Overconvergent Siegel Modular Symbols, duh, work he called ‘original, but still trivial’. His music – intelligent dance electronica that he also releases under moniker Daphni, though his fifth album as Caribou is due this year – is also original, but definitely not trivial. If you’re ever danced to Can’t Do Without You, you’ll know what we mean. And if you haven’t, you can change all that at this year’s Green Man.
