Released:
Label: Mute
After their Darwin-themed opera Tomorrow, In a Year, The Knife are back to beats, but don't expect "Heartbeats" or even Silent Shout. Olof Dreijer's fourth-world techno feels like a living thing, the way it writhes and mutates, and Karin Dreijer Andersson's processed hisses and snarls -- and lyrics rooted in queer theory and radical politics -- are more unnerving than ever. The 19-minute ambient midsection may test your patience, but it's worth it; this is The Knife at their most ambitious and most thrilling.
