Move over Ox, it's the year of the Ray! (ha)...

In the Past few weeks, Shilpa Ray has kicked ass at Le Poisson Rouge, Mercury Lounge, Music Hall of Williamsburg (with the Duke Spirit), and Southpaw. More pictures from the Southpaw show below.

Fans of The Knife will not be disappointed by Fever Ray's haunting new album. Two official videos have been released so far (one yesterday). Watch them both below...

Karin Dreijer Andersson's voice is hauntingly beauuuutiful. Fever Ray beats are dope too.

Shilpa Ray has a great voice. I haven't heard her new band, so I can't comment on them now. But after seeing Beat the Devil a handful of times, I really encourage her to open up musically and get past the raw, punk feel to her music. Listen to anything PJ Harvey recorded after "To Bring You My Love." Shilpa Ray could be doing stuff just as good.

Fever Ray rules!

Shilpa's show on Saturday felt like great filthy sex. That show set the barometer for the rest of the shows of the year. I feel sorry for those who missed it and I hope those who did at least got laid.

fever ray/knife is fucking worthless. no clue what's going on there but you guys have fun with that

shilpa is going to be huge, the songs take a couple of times to get to you, but once they do they are unshakable and they are a force to be reckoned with live

Surely the best way to get people to check out something you're into is to shit all over something they already know they like! Thanks 10:25!

Fever Ray is more dumb white music. Another indie rocker that Joe Strummer needs to come out from the grave and give a beating to.

Why involve the dead in your campaign of musical fascism?

whatever dude, i'm not trying to curry favor and/or extend my personal brand.

just saying, TO ME, the knife is boring and awful and fever ray is just an extension of that.

so i guess it can count as a warning for people who think that maybe they might feature, you know, melodies or meaningful content.

that said there definitely need to be more South Asian musicians with sex appeal/"art cred", and more famous South Asians in general; maybe that will stop 95% of Americans from being horrifyingly racist to them on a daily basis

To the person who commented on Beat The Devil's single color palette: Shilpa's new band is much broader in scope and style. It's just as noisy but is a lot less hamhanded than BTD... still raw but somehow more sophisticated. Check it!

I cannot express how excited I am that she is making music again - I was so sad when Beat the Devil broke up.

The video for 'When I grow up' is amazing, as is the fever ray album and anything touched by the knife. The anons up top that disagree can keep listening to their "melodies and meaningful content" and non-white music.
