The Knife: Shaking The Habitual
Buy! - (Mute)
This Swedish brother-and-sister duo’s fourth album is a foreboding yet fascinating set of dark avant-pop with mostly lengthy songs ranging from techno-influenced, rhythm-driven tracks to disturbing experimental drones. The duo use a variety of instrumentation including violin, cello, flute, harpsichord, horns, metallic percussion and much stranger homemade instruments and found sounds to flesh out their unsettling textures and tricky, shape-shifting polyrhythms accompanying Karin Dreijer Andersson’s eerie vocals and heavily political, defiantly radical lyrics. 4/12/2013 - Don Yates
