“Dance music that sounds like it’s made out of water… rather than made out of metallic stuff like most dance music does.” From Caribou‘s Dan Snaith in describing his upcoming release of the LP Swim (out 4/20 in the US via Merge and in the UK and Europe via City Slang). Recorded in both Wales and with Jeremy Greenspan (Junior Boys) in Hamilton, the album features guests including Keiran Hebden (Four Tet), Born Ruffians‘ Luke Lalonde, Greenspan, and Koushik (Stone’s Throw).

The remix. Really common in this generation we’re living in. Problem is that I hear so many of them that make songs worse than the same or better. Its rare that I come across one that peaks my interest as an artist building upon a previous artists work with something new.
Guelph’s Green Go have recently recorded a bunch of remixes that fall into that rare category. Here are some of their versions of Canadian indies (Gentleman Reg, The Rural Alberta Advantage, D’Urbervilles, Born Ruffians). I’d recommend you check out Sleep All Day (Rural Alberta Advantage) and How We Thunder (Gentleman Reg).
