Daphni, ‘JIAOLONG’

Over the course of many albums and monikers — Manitoba, Caribou, and here, Daphni — Canadian producer Dan Snaith has made his exquisite attention to texture the star of his show. “Swim,” his most recent effort as Caribou, took its liquid inspiration seriously, its songs all caught in a perfectly chaotic current. On “JIAOLONG,” Snaith takes a cue from many nights spent DJing between dates on Caribou tours. It’s an album of dance tracks, but they bear his unmistakable handicraft. “Light” winds pecking arpeggiations around burbling synths and delicate melodic tendrils. The funky pulse of “Pairs” swells and crests like a club anthem. The seductive “Springs” strips down to a kick and a clap. Closing track “Long” appropriately glows like a sunrise through a crack in the club doors. Gutsy, fun, and free, “JIALONG” is entrancing even when it idles (“Ahora”); Snaith has made himself at home on the dancefloor, but he’s never come more off the grid. (Out Tuesday)
