The Knife - BBC radio, Feb. 17, 2005
After yesterday's Swede-a-thon, it seems appropriate to continue the trend. Plus, I just happened to have this set on my HDD and I thought it'd be nice to share.
Today I feature Swedish electro-pop duo The Knife. The band is made up of Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, siblings who have released three albums including Silent Shout, their most recent effort. As a lot of you may know, they have been getting a lot of love from music blogs and critics over the past year. I haven't been as taken with them as some other blog-types (ahem, GvB), but "electronic" music rarely interests me all that much. Anyhow, available here is a short set by The Knife on BBC1 about a year ago. It's only the music, sans chatter or interviews.

The Knife - Pass This On
The Knife - Heartbeats
The Knife - You Make Me Like Charity
You can hear some studio tracks on their MySpace page.
For some song downloads, I suggest visiting this post at Funtime OK. Their current album can be purchased from Amazon, but only as a high-priced import. Anybody know anything about a domestic release?
While you're at it, and since I'm apparently in the midst of a passionate love affair with YouTube at the moment, you can also check out the video for "Heartbeats" below.
