Released: Oct 2012
Label: Merge Records
Daphni is the dance-floor Superman to Caribou's psych-pop Clark Kent. He brings the same wonderfully off-kilter approach to both projects, but the Daphni stuff is all muscle, whether it's the low-slung Afrobeat of "Ne Noya," the R&B-sampling "Yes, I Know" or the garage-gone-haywire squeals of "Springs." The huffing, pumping "Ye Ye," originally released on a split EP with Four Tet, is an instant classic of counterintuitive techno; "Jiao" is part Oni Ayhun, part St. Vitus' dance. It's not all so heavy, though; "Long" is a keening synth jam better suited for swooning than cutting rugs.
