One album conspicuously left off Sach’s list is the latest from the mushroom-gobbling mathematician formerly known as Manitoba. “Odessa,” the lead single leaked from Caribou’s forthcoming Swim might make a titular reference to a Ukranian port city,  but its sonics augur a stark shift from the frail and fractured psychedelia of Andorra to a thumping disco-groove closer to Hot Chip or The Junior Boys on Zoloft. Clearly, the decision to record his fifth effort with Jeremy Greenspan of the Junior’s paid dividends, because this is the most danceable and instantly catchy thing he’s ever released — something that plants his sound firmly within the zeitgeist but stays singular, the logical results of an evolution from Psilocybin to swimming with blue dolphins.
