What’s more romantic: being swept off your feet or planting them firmly on the ground next to the object of your affection? Dan Snaith, the Canadian IDM composer behind Caribou, makes a compelling argument for the latter with Our Love (Merge), his sixth studio album. It’s an album about love, and it’s as exuberant as electronic music gets, full of sparkling synths, R&B-influenced percussion, and even the occasional, joyfully foregrounded flute line. But unlike most albums that fit that description, Our Love isn’t about infatuation; rather, the cause for Snaith’s celebration is being in it for the long haul. The arrangements are as sophisticated and complicated as, well, the real thing—and as likely to endure.
