“Odessa” MP3

Jan 25, 2010

Dan Snaith and his psych-pop ensemble Caribou are preparing the follow-up to their Polaris Music Prize-winning Andorra. the process. It’s called Swim and Merge (North America) and City Slang (U.K. and Europe) will release it on April 20th.

You can download the kaliedoscopic opening track, “Odessa,” on Caribou’s site, for the price of an e-mail address. The track showcases a little bit of what Snaith meant when he said the following statement: “I got excited by the idea of making dance music that’s liquid in the way it flows back and forth, the sounds slosh around in pitch, timbre, pan… Dance music that sounds like it’s made out of water, rather than made out of metallic stuff like most dance music does.”

Most dance-worthy song about divorce? Maybe. (That flute breakdown is pretty rad too.)
