Caribou // Our Love by Alex Bieler

Caribou

Our Love

Merge

4 Stars

On Our Love, Dan Snaith’s sixth album under the name Caribou, the Canadian musician tackles the topic of love, of course, which results in 10 tracks full of intimate compositions that still manage to be quite danceable. Album opener “Can’t Do Without You” makes for four minutes of hypnotic dance music that, unless you happen to hate when lines are constantly repeated, should leave you grooving to the shifting track. Fellow single and title track “Our Love” impresses with its ability to maintain its beat throughout the slow-burner of a track. Our Love rewards with successive listens, as Snaith imbues a lot of subtlety in the album’s intimate tracks, providing nuanced shifts where some artists may have gone for bombast. With some contributions from artists like Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza, Snaith’s tribute to his vision of love is a success.
