Each week, Vulture highlights the best new music. Listen to them all. As the days grow dark and short and long drawn-out baths are the reward for a year of toil, the warmth of an acoustic paean to a dream of everlasting togetherness can fill a cold space with hope and the desire to recuperate for another trip around the sun. Melancholy, as a concept, is incredibly pervasive in the music we listen to. Dan Snaith, as Caribou, has perfected a sad-on-the-dance-floor strain that manages to celebrate love even as it laments the more painful aspects of it. Laying alone in your mistake. Make it up to me someday.
