The Knife to release new album in 2013


The wait is finally over, my friends. Enigmatic and totally awesome Swedish electronic music duo The Knife (siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer) announced this week that their next album, titled Shaking the Habitual, will be released on April 8, 2013. It's been six years since the critically lauded and highly influential Silent Shout, and almost four years since Karin's equally haunting solo album under the pseudonym Fever Ray. Sure, they collabored with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock (aka the poor man's Fever Ray) to release the Darwin-inspired electro-opera Tomorrow, In a Year in 2010, but it's far from a proper follow-up. Additionally, the duo will tour Europe next year on yet-to-be-announced dates.

Earlier this week, the duo posted a typically mysterious teaser trailer for the album, which contains the following description: "Music can be so meaningless. We had to find lust. We asked our friends and lovers to help us."


I loved dem shoes. Ugh, this is all so exciting, I simply cannot wait!!

Here's one of my personal favorites from Silent Shout, "Neverland". For some reason, this song really speaks to me.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
