With 2010's "Swim", Dan Snaith (Caribou) said that he wanted to create "dance music that sounds like it's made out of water" after he took up swimming. He teamed with heavyweights like Four Tet's Kieran Hebden, Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan, and Born Ruffians' Luka Lalonde for the album.

Funny Girl
by Father John Misty
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

Father John Misty will be at the THING Festival in Port Townsend, WA on August 26th. -- Nodding to the bittersweet 1964 showbiz musical starring Barbra Streisand, “Funny Girl” arrives drenched in Old Hollywood affectation. Tillman goes all-in on smitten ripples of strings, brass, and timpani, a luxurious orchestral sweep wrapped around a one-sided “romance.” Addressing an object of intrigue, Tillman skates the line between infatuation and contempt. He undermines flickers of affection (“You knocked me out when you charmed the pants off Letterman”) with barbs too pointed to come off as a harmless attachment (“Yeah, you’re young but, baby, you’re not getting younger”).: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/father-john-misty-funny-girl/

Waiting Room
by Fugazi
(388 plays) | (2 fans)

The song was inspired by the short-lived nature of (then-lead vocalist) Ian MacKaye's previous band Embrace. Wanting to ensure the longevity of his new project, he was "absolutely determined that he was not going to make the same mistakes this time around... It's his song about waiting for the right people and the right moment." https://bit.ly/2OW1N97 -- "I am a patient boy..." If you have enough patience, you can listen to these 10 (!) covers of "Waiting Room," including by Rancid and Jimmie's Chicken Shack: https://www.verbicidemagazine.com/2012/04/23/fugazi-waiting-room-10-covers/
