this human form where i was born i now repent...

caribou. you know him. you love him. you've never heard of him?

caribou continues to craft quirky compositions with class (ha! sober this time too. put that in your literary device and smoke it!) on his album swim. i remember hearing long ago that young master caribou tries to take a completely different approach to recording each album and in the process has made dancy, rocky, flat out strange albums. swim follows this trend but veers back towards disco type dance. it's light and bouncy with simple lyrics. it sounds more  milk of human kindness than andorra which i actually prefer. andorra was a good album but it was a little to 90s alternative rock for me.

i've only had a listen or two of this album so far and i really like it but i have to have a few more listens before i make a final judgement.

have a listen for yourself and let me know what you think
