Let Everybody Know!: First Album From The Knife In Seven Years

Pitchfork, in this glowing (well, glowing for Pitchfork) review of the first album from Swedish duo The Knife, says that “band” is an inadequate word to describe The Knife. In fact, reviewer Lindsay Zoladz says, “The Knife have come to seem like a vibe, an ethic, a dark, not-entirely-scientifically-understood phenomena; other bands are to the Knife what matter is to anti-matter.”

Too much? To us, The Knife is a Laurie Anderson for the modern age — highly conceptual, playing with gender, placing a premium on being enigmatic.

Catch the stream of the entire album here. It’s, well, epic.
