After a three-year hiatus from Caribou, Daniel Snaith returns with an unorthodox electro-pop dance album. Where repetition normally prevails in traditional dance songs, Snaith becomes unpredictable. Tracks like opener “Odessa” and album standout “Leave House” begin with a semblance of structure then break into bursts of percussion where various sounds seem to arrange all on their own. While some songs may become tedious, like the lengthy “Hannibal,” the album as a whole is a great addition to the Caribou discography LYNN LIEU
