Caribou (AKA Dan Snaith, formerly known as Manitoba) makes music that is more compelling on paper than on record. ‘Melody Day’, for instance, features a mixture of surf guitar, bedroom laptronica and blissful psychedelia. Sounds exciting? Well, it’s not. The song is brusque and busy, and the production attempts to cram rather too much into a tight space. Frustrating, as there is a great track buried in here somewhere.
