Aye that was the setup for Andorra, Swim etc. But I thought I saw him and he’d dropped the band for Our Love. Although I did see him tour Our Love and there was the band, I think. Could be misremembering and it was just him solo as Daphni though
Glad for the change in direction. Every Caribou album was a shift in direction, until the last, which was like a watered down version of the housier bits of Swim.
This has definitely got that early 00s sampladelic instrumental hip hop thing going on, Avalanches etc. Not sure it completely grabs me as a standalone track, but can see it fitting into a record.
Hopefully a hip hop vibe means a return of the best bit of Caribou - The drums. Thought the last LP really lacked them and didn’t even feel like a Caribou record as a result (apart from the cathartic moment they come in on Can’t Do Without You).
Was initially a bit disappointed when I heard Our Love as it drifted further from the layered instrumentation and lush production that had made his sound so distinctive, in favour of a more traditional House sound. But really got into it once I’d ignored those quibbles.
