You can dance with the one you came with

An unwilling wearer of party hats
Calgary singer-songwriter Rae Spoon checked his acoustic guitar at the door when recording his latest single, “You Can Dance,” which is dominated by thudding beats and echoing synth sparkle. Despite its and title and its nightclub-friendly lyrics (“You can dance with the one you came with / Or you can come home with me”), this one is all about the atmospherics, and its stuttering rhythms are better suited to moping in the corner than busting loose on the dancefloor. The new album may be called Love Is a Hunter, but there’s nothing predatory about his pleas here.

Love Is a Hunter is out August 27 via Saved By Radio.
