Best known for his work as Caribou (and Manitoba before that), Dan Snaith has used the Daphni name for a few singles and remixes over the past year, and will use it once again for a new album. JIAOLONG shares its name with Snaith's record label, and will collect a number of already-released tracks (as will pal Four Tet's new album Pink will), there will be enough new content to be worth looking forward to. JIAOLONG follows Snaith's influential 2010 album Swim (as Caribou) will first be released in Japan on 3rd October (via Hostess / JIAOLONG) before seeing a UK / EU / Austrailia date for the 8th October (JIAOLONG), and a day later in the US (9th October digital, 16th October 2LP / CD via Merge / JIAOLONG).
