Incredible album from multi-instrumentalist/ producer/ songwriter/ singer/ arranger/ composer/ maths PHD/ sonic wizard Dan Snaith/ Manitoba/ Caribou. Where Snaith's productions of old were shot in brave psychedelic technicolour distilled through the grain of Super-8, 60's psych, fractured Motorik and West-Coast pop, Swim sees the Canadian embrace liquid grooves, hooked by 4/4 impulses, funky filtering and a more than realistic nod to the dancefloor. An exultant, restless, frequently brilliant success.
In his own words; “The most important thing for me with this record was finding my own sonic vocabulary. That’s why I’m proud of this record.”, Caribou.
