Caribou_-_Swim1Rarely is a track so catchy, so alive, so moving, that it could earn the title of Perfection. “Odessa,” the opening K.O. punch of Caribou’s (née Daniel Snaith) latest work, is one of those rarities. With Swim, Caribou pushes his sound into the present, mixing elements of electro-pop, experimental, funk and jazz. While “Odessa” is a clear stand out, any one of the album’s tracks would stand among most bands’ best work. Snaith’s music isn’t genre shattering; the influence of other groups—like Röyksopp, Chemical Brothers, Miike Snow, Hercules and Love Affair, and Peter Bjorn and John—is obvious. However, it’s difficult to pin down what exactly catapults Caribou above his predecessors and contemporaries. Read full review at
