New Caribou, "Odessa"

Three years since his last album, Caribou's Dan Snaith had seemingly disappeared amidst the sensational noise of the music scene. However, it appears that silence is over. Swim, which is out April 20 via Merge, is his latest work, and based on the first track, "Odessa," it figures to be quite the experience. The track bounces between synths and psychedelic noise. It's dance pop, mixed with organic elements to form an odd, yet enjoyable juxtaposition that creates a personality hard to find in a good portion of electronic music. But somehow it manages to get the job done-- very well, in fact. You can check it out for yourself for the price of an email address if you head over to his website.
