After drawing from IDM, krautrock, and sunshine pop, Dan Snaith's project sets its sights on dark and intricate dance music, with dazzling results.

Multi-personal Dan Snaith's only work that I was able to follow and focus on. He has a chamaleon artistry with constant shifts between genres and Swim is the one that I find peacefully static.

Here is some lyrics by Pink Floyd that have no connection with our debate whatsoever:

"Change returns success
Going and coming without error.
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset, sunrise."

Not quite on the level of Our Love imo, but still an impressive piece of work, it just sounds a little less focused to me. I really dug Our Love's glossy, synthetic sound which isn't quite as present here, still enjoyed it though.

Caribou logra un marcado "indiectronica" en Swim y deja fluir todo el color que las melodías tienen para ofrecer.

Let me start by saying "Bowls" is still sonic gold.
