Swim is the fifth studio album by Canadian mathematician and composer Dan Snaith (who performs under the stage name Caribou). It is his third album as Caribou and features various kinds of electronic dance music. The album was simply inspired by Snaith waking up every day to work on music and his added DJ gigs. As a result, almost 700 songs were started/completed for the album’s consideration. The sole release was Odessa. It was featured in numerous commercials and included in the video game FIFA 11. Pitchfork listed it as one of the 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far in August 2014.
