First Spin: The Week’s Best New Dance Tracks From Caribou, LP Giobbi & HANA & More

Dan Snaith’s 2020 LP Home was all texture and melancholic mood, an album made for the long, contemplative solitude of quarantine. The Canadian producer’s latest single is…not that. “You Can Do It” is pure joy, manifest in the bright, gently ascending chord progressions, the lyrics (“You can do it! You can do it! You can do it!…”) and the corresponding video, which simply features dogs — glorious dogs! — jumping and running through fields and catching frisbees in slow motion. Watch it. Try not to smile. Altogether, it’s a tightly produced, deliciously un-self-serious one-off from one of the best in the game. Caribou goes on tour in North America this fall, with dates extending into early 2022. — KATIE BAIN

LP Giobbi & HANA, “Close Your Eyes”

Giving early ’90s, mild Everything But The Girl vibes, the new collab from piano house producer LP Giobbi and Los Angeles-based vocalist HANA (who’s previously worked with artists including Tchami and Durante) simultaneously soothes and haunts. The underwater piano stabs create urgency, while the layers of beats and synth crescendo to soul-quenching effect, altogether demonstrating why the Oregon-born producer is one of the artists we’re currently most excited about. Released via Insomniac Records, “Close Your Eyes” is the latest from Spotify’s “mint Singles” series, which enlists artists to make a track exclusively for the streaming platform and which is an offshoot of the Spotify Singles series. — K.
