Track Review: Caribou - Can't Do Without You


Dan Smith's colourful music career only seems to gain momentum as the years and albums pass. His previous effort Swim under the moniker Caribou was a brilliant piece of electronica music for the car, bedroom, and the club. One listen to "Odessa" is enough to turn any on the fence electronic music fan to explore and experience the beat making geniuses that pop up from time to time releasing new music. Dan Smith belongs to a prolific group of electronic artists who are skilled across the board, specifically a steady ear and a knack for sampling - Derwin Schlecker and Kieran Hebden, take a bow.


"I can't do without you," the only lyrics to Caribou's "Can't Do Without You", except the closing moments. Of course, Smith's music speaks louder than words, and electronic music isn't one to be exposed for pop melodies and simplistic structures. Instead, Smith uses his more than capable percussion skills to build the base of his pre-release single, adding dubstep inspired synthesizers and soulful vocals as he pleases. "Can't Do Without You" is a typical Caribou track, exciting on the first listen, and all listens that follow.
