Let’s just call today #Tunesday instead of Thursday and pretend that I posted this a couple of days ago when I was supposed to have. I don’t often go back if I’ve missed a post but sometimes the particular release is just too good to not write something up and share with all of you.
Caribou‘s sixth full length, Our Love, is the dance oriented collection beatheads among us (like myself) have always been hoping he’d make. Such is the colorful surprise that Canadian Dan Snaith (aka Caribou) has given us. Danceable while not letting go of any of the superbly composed yet more experimental aspects of his ambient sound textures, he finally gets us off of our dreamy lounges and onto the dance floor proper.
“Our Love” is filled with watery synths and echoey vocals; this craft that Snaith has honed and built is a submersible, taking us to aquatic depths that stir the bottom sediment, lifting it to sparkle in the long fingers of sunlight filtering down through the warm water.
