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, DAN SNAITH has been a leading figure in electronic music over the past decade. A mathematics scholar and an ingenious multiinstrumentalist/composer, 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. After the startling infectiousness of Andorra, Swim is a more complex, multi-layered affair—ripe with fascinating rhythms, instrumentation, and vocals (including those of BORN RUFFIAN’s LUKE LALONDE)—that becomes more alluring with each listen.
