No idea why people would pay the silly prices asked by some flippers here. As of today this is still available on www.vinylmeplease.com for 35 USD.

just going to leave this here for the people saying this LP is crackling.
it seems to me that this is what this record is supposed to sound like. You get the same crackling noise on the digital release.

Sounds great to me. Doesn't seem too fast, maybe a tad but it's hard to tell. No crackling or noises (I bought it second-hand, but NM).

Sounds a little fast. They should also know better than to not write anywhere on the packaging or labels that this is a 45rpm pressing.

I also have a quiet pressing that sounds very good to me.

I really enjoy this album. I bought this copy thanks to SonofGalahad's review and because I was placing another order to ship from Europe. This sounds GREAT and the inner sleeves are plastic lined (I hate cheap paper sleeves). The CD booklet is lame though. Hard to believe that the artwork could not be obtained in a format suitable for 12"x12" reproduction.

How does a Caribou SWIM, you might ask? Quite well, as a matter of fact. Dan Snaith moves further in an electronic direction with this album, starting with a deeper, almost funky "Odessa" and moving to the jazzy syncopation and filtered vocal of the more house-centric "Sun." The refracting synths come against a horn band and his plaintive vocals on "Kaili," whereas the harp and bell tones on the instrumental "Bowls" add an almost Buddhist texture to the low-key rhythm. "Hannibal," similarly, has a wooziness to its synths which carries into the subdued groove of "Lalibela" before the "Jamelia" comes in quiet as a lamb before exploding like a lion eating dynamite. Definitely one of Snaith's stronger efforts.

So I just bought Merge's pressing at a store in my area, and there seems to be a problem with the stereo, has anyone experienced an album with the right track playing extremely faintly? I've resorted to mono.
