Editorial Reviews

With its absorption of club culture sounds weaved within subtle pop frameworks, Swim is Caribou's masterpiece the record he's wanted to bring to fruition for as long as he's been making music. A Canadian from small-town Ontario now based in England, Snaith has been a leading figure in electronic music over the past decade. He surprised critics and fans with 2007's Andorra, a brilliant, electro-tinged pop breakthrough with a timeless grace that made most year-end "Best of" lists and won Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize.

So you say you loved Andorra, but you don't trust Dan Snaith because the sneaker bugger never does the same thing twice? Good call. However, if Dan Snaith is known for anything, it should be for being able to live and breathe whatever musical genre he is currently digging. When he was heavy into dreamy '60s psych pop, we got the brilliance that is Andorra. Now, Snaith has been getting his groove on to dark electro dance music, and true to his craft, he has expertly synthesized what he knows and turned it into a fresh and unique take on the genre. First track "Odessa" happens to be both my favorite song on the album and simultaneously the most accessible one. I hope this doesn't reflect poorly on my cred. The rest of the album takes a darker, pulsing turn, with stretched out melodies belying very intricate production. With help from guys like Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys and Four Tet, you should expect no less. Yet another great album for 2010, hot damn.

This really is one of the best releases of '10 thus far. I didn't know much about Caribou before hearing this and I must say I'm quite impressed. This is one of the most consistently interesting and melodic dance releases in recent memory. The other reviewers seem to think this is one of his weaker efforts. If that's true, his good stuff must be really mind-blowing.

Was into some of Snaith's earlier 'Manitoba' stuff, but had sort of stopped following him, until he opened for Radiohead and totally rocked it, causing me to go back and revisit him again. Damn, 'Swim' is unreal. I can see why Thom Yorke is into this. Kudos to Dan Snaith for continuing to make incredibly good electronic music, and shame on me for stopping paying attention to him. Well, I'm back!! :)

How does a Caribou SWIM, you might ask? Quite well, as a matter of fact. Dan Snaith moves further in an electronic direction with this album, starting with a deeper, almost funky "Odessa" and moving to the jazzy syncopation and filtered vocal of the more house-centric "Sun." The refracting synths come against a horn band and his plaintive vocals on "Kaili," whereas the harp and bell tones on the instrumental "Bowls" add an almost Buddhist texture to the low-key rhythm. "Hannibal," similarly, has a wooziness to its synths which carries into the subdued groove of "Lalibela" before the "Jamelia" comes in quiet as a lamb before exploding like a lion eating dynamite. Definitely one of Snaith's stronger efforts.

I know I gave this guy a chance once before, and didn't really like all the lyrics. But after listening to SWIM on another web site, I was captivated by the different rhythms and the jazzy feel to the whole album. Now I getting all the Caribou I can on Prime and listening all day! Nice work, Caribou.

I had heard about caribou in the past and some freinds of mine told me that he was a good artist, but i never got around to cheacking him out. I was surfing through the music store at Amazon.com and the album "Swim" was on my reconmendations list. Being curious i sampled a few songs. after a few minutes of listning, i found myself drawn to the solid beats and groving to the almost hypnotic sounds that were being generated. Considering it was only 5$ at the time, i of course bought it. With a talent at creating mezmerizing sounds and a flow of variaty, Caribou has done the music world a favor and makes an origanel CD few seem to appriciate these day's. While im not a fan of a couple of song's on there {Kaili and leave house} the others show a good foundation. All in all, If you are a techno/Indie Rock fan like me, I would deffinatly give it a shot at least once.

I admit to being a fan of Caribou, so I was prepared to like this cd; I was not disappointed in the least. Caribou is right on near perfect on his latest disc. This is ear candy in the best sense of the phrase. Mellow , trippy, psychedelic, fanciful, freespirited, creative and alive with melodies and riffs galore! A real fun album to uplift your moods. It's been in my cd player a lot this past month. Very satisfying as an overall piece of work that ranks high on the scale of pop deliciousness that makes it all worthwhile....enjoy and often.......

First off, I saw Caribou open for Radiohead last summer and they were awesome. I asked for and received a copy of Swim for Valentines Day and it sounds great. Luckily I didn't have problems with my vinyls like another reviewer, they play just fine and aren't warped at all. Luckily Amazon returns are really easy too so if you get a bad seed, exchange it. (I had to do that with a Burial album recently)

Oh, and it's not stated (on Amazon or the album itself) but the vinyls are actually 45 speed so make sure to adjust your turntable accordingly.
