Fever Ray

I am quite absorbed in Fever Rays self titled album at the moment. It is the work of one half of the Knife, Karin Dreijer Anderssons.

The album infiltrates spaces previously unexplored by electro heads. There are times in this album where I felt I was lost in the landscape of a world of synths and percussion that is subtle and incredibely powerful at the same time. Put this baby on loud while driving and the bass shudders the car with a surprising tenacity. The vocals as expected are majestic and fitting with the challenges of each song.

In terms of consistency and overall quality I believe this offering surpasses that of the Knifes brilliant album of 2006 "Silent Shout"

Here is the opening track of the album (out in shops mid-March)
