@LEGUESSWHO tips by Dan Seligman @popmontreal - SWANS, Caribou, Subtitle

We have asked our favorite promoters, festivals and bands to tip their three recommendations from this year's Le Guess Who? festival line-up. This edition: Dan Seligman, co-creator and creative director of Montreal's annual music festival Pop Montreal.

SWANS (Wed 24 Nov)
As soon as I walked into the Swans show at POP Montreal last month, I felt an unbelievable visceral surge throughout my body. It was half way through their set and I could tell the audience was being transmitted to a wholly different place. A Swans show must be experienced. Their sound is something you feel throughout your body. It is an unmistakable, moving, beautiful and scary experience that you never will forget.

Caribou (Fri 26 Nov)
Caribou puts on a really amazing live show. His new album is totally brilliant with a nice tip of the cap to Arthur Russell. Go to this show, bring your dancing shoes and get ready for a trippy party jam.

Subtitle (Sat 27 Nov)
I've known Giovanni Marks aka Subtitle for almost a decade. We've smoked weed together in various alleys, basements and crevices. Once we smoked weed in a dorm room while on tour with the Unicorns. Listening to him speak is like opening an encyclopedia into the occult. Go to his show, introduce yourself to him and show him some love!
