New Fever Ray?


#41

Just finishing this off for the first time, really enjoyed and it’s 1230am

I loved the first fever ray record and this is a lot more like the knife but the first couple of songs sound great. Will listen to more


#42

It’s on her own Rabid Records label isn’t it so the economics makes sense - it’s almost like the digital release is a crowdfunder for the physical


#43

Oh man Peder Mannerfelt is all over this album. Paula Temple too. Two of my favourite techno artists of the last couple of years. Hype rising…


#44

basically just this innit:


#45

Standard for Radiohead so I guess that’s cool. Presumably you’ll be able to pre-order the vinyl and get the digital immediately?

(Am I alone in thinking that Clash article is a bit weird for not having a direct link to where you’ll be able to buy the album?)


#46

I like the artwork. What’s wrong with it?


#47

Anybody know if you get the digital straight away when you order the record?


#48

bit rubbish tbh


#49

I needn’t have worried. This is ace.


#50

Loving the album, and artwork!


#51

Yeah, really into it. A live show that mixes this with the old stuff could be excellent (and she says she’s touring next year!).


#52

sounds really good so far

really think karin might be one of my favourite vocalists, she’s so original. i just love her whole schtick.


#53

Sounding exactly like what I wanted. Leaning on the poppier side of the industrial sound explored on Shaking the Habitual, which often got a bit obtuse. First impression is that To the Moon and Back was a bit of a red herring for the overall sound. Really working with some great producers here too.


#54

It looks like you just get a download card with the vinyl (which obviously isn’t great if that’s still 4 months away).

Not 100% certain on that though.


#55

Yeah, I wasn’t that taken by that one, but it’s definitely not representative of the rest of the album. But equally sounds much better as a song when heard in context of the rest of the album.


#56

Gah. That’s a bit frustrating


#57

I like this. Not sure it quite hits the heights of her solo debut, but that’s at straight up 10/10 masterpiece for me.


#58

A lot more dance-y/knife-y innit


#59

Definitely. And I have no problem with that. :slightly_smiling_face:

Didn’t realise a whole album was out. Had seen the video for the single which is good. Got me watching old Knife videos though, made me realise that A Tooth For An Eye is probably my favourite thing they’ve ever done, either together or separately.

Will listen tomorrow hopefully if I get the chance. Glad it’s more Knife-y
