dan snaith, formerly manitoba, in recent years caribou, is responsible for the album Swim. through his new album, caribou is evolving and is moving in other directions. he tries to give his songs a sort of flexible flow not often seen in dance music. stressful and stripped vocals with less reverb and special effects, a result of the collaboration with junior boys' jeremy greenspan, leads the album in a more minimalistic, early techno and electronic way.picks of the album, 'oddesa', a real adhesive track, with its rhythm and vocals, and the recognizable bassline, 'sun', almost ecstatic, 'hannibal', a floor-killer song with a tremendous bassline and a melody reminding paul kalkbrenner songs, and for the end, 'jamelia', with luke lalonde chorus vocals, an emotive and atmospherically closer. for those that are already in electronic-pop, this album may be one their favorite releases this year, like myself. as for fans of previous work of caribou, u won't be disappointed, as the evolutionary songwriting will be hard to miss due to its distinctive familiarity.
