New Caribou album drops on iTunes Radio

When Canadian Dan Snaith was greeted with a lawsuit over his moniker “Manitoba,” he deftly transitioned to a handle pretty much just as Canadian: Caribou. The dude has a Ph.D. in math and has become one of the more celebrated musician/DJ combos of our generation. Caribou’s 2007 album Andorra won the 2008 Polaris Prize, his 2010 record Swim was shortlisted for it, and Snaith’s most recent effort, Jiaolong, was considered for the award as well.

Caribou is well-known for adjusting his sound from album to album. He told Wikinews, “[I]n music I will have an idea to put some different sounds together or a melody that meshes with a chord sequence or a sonic mood. I’m not the type of person who takes physical things apart and plays around with them, but I like taking mental ideas apart and playing around with them. That's what appeals to me about what I've spent my life doing." That's pretty awesome, Dan.

After dishing out epic 7.5 hour long DJ sets over the past couple years, Snaith is back with another LP and another massive tour. Our Love is “formed around a mixture of digital pop production, hip hop inspired beats, muted house basslines and a love of shuffling garage,” according to the press release.

The record just dropped on iTunes Radio, so get your taste there before picking up the real deal when Our Love becomes available on October 7. Oh, and if you feel so inspired to see him live (you should), then hey see below:
