Check out this stream of the soon to be released album by another one of my favorite sounds. It’s been 7 years since their last release, and it completely blindsided me. I’m in sonic-overload today!
The Knife’s fourth album, and first in seven years, Shaking the Habitual, is now streaming [one full week] ahead of its official release date (April 9th via Mute).
Take a listen at Pitchfork.
The tracklist spans 13 songs running 90-minutes in length (!), making it a double CD and triple LP. One of the tracks (“Old Dreams Waiting to Be Realized”) is over 19 minutes long, another (“Oryx”) is just 37 seconds.
Pre-orders are ongoing.
