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.

The City Slang variant of Swim is cut at 33rpm, but is pressed on what appears to be quiet 180gram wax. The pressing is - in my opinion - vastly superior to the Merge offering.

I bought two Merge Swim LPs; both LPs of both copies suffered terrible warping and several sides were noticeably stamped off center. I watched the stylus waggle back and forth on side B to a degree that was causing a tonal warble on the long tones in the music on that side. Obviously both copies were from the same stamper as both sucked. Between the hop and the lateral movement, the turd pressing bore out how well my tonearm was able to keep up, but at 45rpm the records would almost invariably skip on a lesser deck. Maybe Merge blew their price point on the lovely spot-varnished cover and insert art and couldn't boot for a quality record? Who knows.

Sent for the City Slang pressing - slightly nicer packaging and it sounds better, despite being cut at 33rpm. This was not the first time I bought a Merge record that was crappy. Not sure what their problem is but Dan Snaith's work deserves better. Just my experience.

Can anyone tell me if this release is 45RPM?

Silky Electronic-Dub-Folk at the beginning and at the end, distorted climax in the middle. Smooth vocals. Beautiful.
