Dan Snaith, aka Caribou, drops the title track of his latest album as a stand-alone 12" here, a masterclass in crisp modern electronics, uplifting housey synths and ethereal wisps of soulful vocals. Over on the other side there's a remix by Daphni, aka Dan Snaith...hang on a minute, that's the same person!

- Our Love (single) by Caribou
If the first two singles taken from it are to believed, Caribou’s new record sound like its going to be a bit of a banger. After only recently managing to get ‘Can’t Do Without You’ out of my head, here comes the follow up. The thing is - his production chops ain’t that great, the beats are insipid, samples are just kind of plonked anywhere but but he has a knack with catchy hooks and just putting little earworms in the track that make you come back for more. ‘Our Love ‘ is more laid back than with some neatly churned vocal samples, a big fat bassline and some nice acidy bloops. Sounds great pumping out the wireless. Overleaf, presumably to save the cost of hiring a remixer he’s basically remixed himself under his alter ego Daphni. A much more clubby take on the track, probably best heard in a gymnasium.
