When The Knife first came out, I embraced the brother sister duo from scandinavia wholeheartedly, it helped that my “small-town art fuck” (their words, not mine) co-workers didn’t. I played that shiz constantly.
Then Fever Ray dropped – the sister half of The Knife’s solo project. Expecting more or the same a la Dan Auerbach vs. The Black Keys, it took me a few to grab hold of what was happening to my ears. I’m there now, and I hope you all will join.
Here’s a sweet vid from the album.
