"Deep Cuts" (The Knife)

I had plans today.  I did.  Then I decided to stay in, clean house, and listen to music.
I’ve recently reacquainted myself with The Knife, particularly Deep Cuts.  Another one of my beloved European electro duos, specifically of the Swedish variety.  The first song I heard off this album was “Pass This On.”  I love the unique sound of Karin Dreijer Andersson’s voice in any capacity, but I feel like “Pass This On” captures an allure unique among the other tracks on the album.  Like most albums I adore, this one contains great lyrics and excellent beats.  Making for some good, mellow dance times on this lazy Sunday.  Listen for excellent backing vocals from Jenny Wilson on “You Take My Breath Away,” too.  It’s a real treat.  “Got 2 Let U” reminds me of bad decisions on a really good night.  The fun kind!  (:
It should be noted that beyond The Knife, Andersson and Olof Dreijer (the other half of the duo) also run their own record company, Rabid Records.  Andersson has released some work under the project name Fever Ray.  Impressive stuff.
