Record Review: Caribou

Caribou
Swim
[2010, Merge]
3/4

This one took a little while to grow on me. I instantly loved lead single "Odessa," but for a long time I thought "Sun" was irritating (it's since become a favorite from the record). Caribou (the project of Dan Snaith) largely eschews the traditional guitars/drums/keyboards setup featured predominantly on Andorra in favor of experimental house that's heavily influenced by Arthur Russell's Calling Out of Context. I had a lot of trouble finding something to talk about with this album, but after weeks of delays (sorry), I finally had a solid angle to work with. Read the whole thing (it's not that long) over at In Review Online.
