Caribou – “Our Love”
Written by DJ Ekonomiks on February 11, 2016
This week I’m spinning a classic wavy dance party album “Our Love” by Caribou. This record is one of the most vibey and atmospheric albums I’ve ever heard. The composition of each song consists of rich soundscapes and crazy weird synthesizers with trippy vocal samples layered on top of a driving beat and bassline. Dan Snaith crafts each song with the utmost care, making each song unique but keeping a cohesive feel throughout the entire album. His use of unconventional time signatures and his progressive take on house music make this album a blast to listen to.
Every time I spin this record from start to finish I have to dance to at least a few songs, they’re just so catchy and rhythmic that I can’t help myself.
The other album I have up for today is Chrome Sparks “Goddess EP“. This album falls into the same vein of progressive dance music. I really like how each has a definite structure that flows and ebbs and builds into a castle of sound. This tape is really uplifting and has a kind of energy that’s infectious when played in the right situation. Overall, this EP goes above and beyond what I expected and really blew me away the first time I listened to it.
Anyways, hope y’all enjoyed this weeks’ episode of Mood Swings. Until next time,
