Caribou Unveils Swim Remixes Album

Caribou Unveils <i>Swim Remixes</i> Album
Many fans still haven't had a chance to get ahold of Caribou's new live album, available only at shows, but Dan Snaith is already getting set to release his next project. This time, he's putting together a remix album for this year's Polaris shortlisted LP Swim.

Functionally titled Swim Remixes, it features 15 tracks. The original Swim is only nine songs long, so that means this one features multiple versions of the same tracks; the single "Odessa" appears three times, while "Hannibal" and "Lalibela" aren't there at all. A fourth version of "Odessa" will be an iTunes bonus track.

Among the buzz-worthy artists Snaith hired to remix his tracks are Junior Boys, Fuck Buttons, Nite Jewel and Gold Panda. You can download Motor City Drum Ensemble's take on "Leave House" right here.

The remix set will be out digitally in North America on November 2 via Merge. In Europe, it will be handled by City Slang, who list the release date as October 29, although this is a Friday instead of the usual Monday. City Slang will include a hard copy of Swim Remixes in future CD sales of Swim, and will give away a download code with vinyl sales. The CD version will only feature 11 songs.

Thanks to Pitchfork for the heads-up.
