Been waiting to hear The Knife‘s first album since 2006′s Silent Shout? Well wait no longer. The most anticipated album this side of Daft Punk started streaming on the Swedish duo’s website just a few minutes ago, and you can indulge in the dark and weird world of Shaking The Habitual right here. Get settled in.
Enigmatic Swedish duo The Knife are are back with their first proper album since 2006′s Silent Shout. Shaking The Habitual sees the brother and sister pair of Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olaf Dreijer back together following eight years worth of quality solo release, her as Fever Ray, him as Oni Ayhun. And seeing as how their last album found it’s way onto every major ‘Best of 2006′ list, yet still holds up perfectly today, we’re obviously excited about any new music. “Full Of Fire” delivers, but in unexpected ways. The opening post-punky electro beat had us worried The Knife may be trapped in mid-’00s electro’s past. But things start to wiggle and shake and by the end of the 9 minute stomper, you’re ready to take the ride all over again.
