CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

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

AllMusic

Even though you could call this move toward the dancefloor a surprise, Swim retains all the qualities that make Snaith and Caribou so impressive. It just dresses them up for a night out at the club; no, make that a great night out at the club.

Swim is lush and fresh and is honestly so interesting and unique especially for an album that draws to much from IDM. This record is just so groovy yet calm, it is the kind of record you could play at a club and have people dance to, or you could play it while lying in bed and peacefully doze off to it. It just has such a nice and joyful vibe and atmosphere which is conveyed in all the fresh electronic flourishes that occupy Swim.

Best Track: Bowls
Worst Track: Kaili

The first time I heard this I thought it was a greatest hits record because every song is tight and unique. This doesn't have the coherence that 'Our Love' has, but damn does Caribou know how to wake me up.
