More, give me more, give me more
Given that Silent Shout was my favourite record of 2006, it shouldn't be odd that I'd be excited about a side project from the Knife. But one of the friends at the record store played me one of the albums by Karin Dreijer Andersson's first band, Honey Is Cool, and I was pretty underwhelmed. So when I had the chance to listen to her new band(?) Fever Ray I was lukewarm, but after one listen I think this is nearly the equal of Silent Shout. We'll see if it holds up, but I'm pretty excited. The biggest difference seems to be, well, listen to "If I Had a Heart" just above - no Knife song I can think of would let that much tension go unresolved. I kept expecting some beats or some catharsis of some sort. I'm rather happy they just let it dissolve, though. Great video as well.
