The Knife - Shaking The Habitual (Rabid Records)

The Knife’s new album comes in the form of ‘Shaking the Habitual’. Press play and there are immediate hints of Börk and Kate Bush, a theme which permeates the whole release.

The album moves the listener through an often dark and pained cinematic soundscape, its influences spanning vast oceans through African, oriental and middle-eastern musical references. But there are no clichés here.

The organic and electronic fuse perfectly in a twisted myriad of raw world samples, 808 drum loops, techy arps and spacey atmospherics. It almost plays like an Underworld or Coldcut album – an album that evolves on every listen.

The crazy pink artwork will see you cross-eyed, as will the unique and trippy vibes. An education, an experience.

'Shaking The Habitual' is out now on Rabid Records. Check the audio/video of my favourite single 'A Tooth For An Eye' and head over to Juno and download it

You can also stream the whole album over at the official website:
