Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. After the exciting psych-pop of 2007’s Andorra, fans of Dan Snaith — aka Caribou — might have wondered what, if anything, could top that remarkable album. But Swim at least matches it even though it's is an altogether different beast. Here Snaith goes deep into electronic dance music and experimental textures, and the colors morph from neon brights to shades of midnight blue and gray. The dance floor calls, with tunes like the pulsating “Odessa” and “Leave House” burrowing deep on beats built with spare, emphatic layers, but there’s an industrial shadow, a veiled bleakness to some of these tracks, and it makes them all the more beautiful: “Jamelia” is the sound of desperation drowning under shrieking synths and watery percussion, and “Kaili” is full-on psychotropic mind-cinema (just close your eyes for a ride), its corroded and plaintive tones the cries of a lost soul. Swim is all soul, though it’s delivered in electronica’s sometimes sterile wrapping. With Snaith at the controls, sterility is never a concern.

I haven't even finished the album, but it's already a great listen...Kind of a next logical step for Caribou. Also, for experimental dance music, it's REALLY well mastered. Dynamic and colorful.

Dan Snaith's early recordings as Manitoba underlined his status among the chattering electronic classes as one of the brightest talents to emerge during the early 2000s. Having already proved himself master of the sublime with his 2000 debut EP, People Eating Fruit, the Canadian's subsequent Paul's Birthday EP opened him out even further. After moving to London, he released an excellent second album, Up in Flames (2003), that saw him become a darling of critics. One year later, however, Snaith was...
