Dan Snaith, formerly Manitoba and now producing under the name Caribou, specializes in that particular brand of Pitchfork-approved dance music that nicely slots in your iPod shuffle somewhere between Toro Y Moi and Panda Bear’s latest. It’s weird, but not abrasively weird, ambiguously wistful and unerringly pretty. In other words, he plays it a bit safe, which isn’t to say the man’s not consistently entertaining: He hasn’t made a bad track in a decade, and at his best he proves why he belongs on the top rung of the electronic ladder, with his albums becoming simultaneously more broadly populist and dance-floor-appropriate as his career’s progressed. Last year’s Our Love is his best in a while, a spotless collection of bittersweet synthetic electro charting the universal ups and downs of a committed relationship—a surprisingly mature approach that suits Snaith well.
