Daphni - Cherry

Excellent new Daphni album, mixing a variety of styles but always with that high quality seal that we have come to know from both Daphni as Jiaolong. Whether in the studio or the club, Daphni (a.k.a. Caribou a.k.a. Dan Snaith) has always been a pursuit where he lets the music find its own path. With Cherry this is more evident than ever, this sense of the tracks as objects with life and desires outside of Snaith’s control has now become a driving force in their creation. Recorded over a prolonged period, Snaith let the music go where it wanted to go. New gear and ways of working meant Snaith was able to sit at the centre of the music but let things get away from him a bit more as equipment began to make its own decisions before reeling it back in to suit his purposes, or as he puts it ''getting the snake to eat its own tail''.
