Mere days ago, Caribou was but a cloven-hoof animal to us, but after hearing "Odessa" on our local college radio station, the word has come to mean something much more exciting! Caribou, otherwise known as Daniel Snaith, creates electronic dance goodness that will either make you move your body or lock you into a dreamy trance. The goal of his current album Swim ($13) was "to create dance music that sounds like it's made out of water." And, we think he hit it right on the head with his rich and layered sounds. We're putting this one on loop at our next house party!
