Catch up with Caribou at the Danforth Music Hall
Whether Dan Snaith is creating retro-pop, shoegaze or dance music, the Ontario-bred, England-based DJ and producer—who at various times has gone by Caribou, Manitoba and Daphni—does it well. Caribou’s Andorra won the Polaris Prize in 2007, and its follow-up, Swim, won a Juno for best electronic album. It’s not hard to imagine Snaith’s latest release, Our Love, bringing in the same sort of accolades. Referencing early house music and featuring Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza , the record is packed with sonic subtlety. Hear it when Snaith, as Caribou, stops at the Danforth Music Hall for a show alongside Lanza. Regular tickets are sold out, but anyone willing to cough up a couple extra bucks should have no trouble getting in.
Mon. Nov. 24. $30–$32.75. Danforth Music Hall, 147 Danforth Ave., 416-778-8163, ticketmaster.com.
