As he evidenced in full on this year's wonderful Swim, Canadian music man Dan Snaith has equally soft spots for electronic-based dance music and summery psych-pop. His latest record as Caribou showcased a proclivity for the former, but Snaith sort of evens the playing field on this epic remix he's crafted for the UK's Silver Columns. The first half of his treatment for "Always On" is pure dancefloor brilliance à la Swim, and he even throws a bit of his own vocals into the mix. But as the track's nine minutes pass the halfway point, the house lights dim, the lava lamp flicks on, some hippie girl wearing a headband and a bikini top slowly waves her arms in the air, and things turn a bit more late-'60s. Caribou's remix culminates in a driving finale that—not unlike his excellent albums—demands repeated listens. (via FACT)
