Fever Ray @ Webster Hall in September (more by Ryan Muir)
Fever Ray

Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the music for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book 'On the Origin of the Species', The Knife decided to make this a collaborative process, working with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the first time, to capture the huge width of the Darwin and evolution theme. They extensively researched Darwin related literature and articles, with Olof attending a field recording workshop in the Amazon to find inspiration and to record sounds.
The Knife's 92-minute work is titled Tomorrow, In a Year. It comes out digitally on February 2nd and as a two-disc CD on March 1st through Rabid Records. You can buy the album digital and preorder the CD now through the band's site.

The track "Colouring Of Pigeons" from the opera is up as a free download on their site and the entire thing is streaming on NPR until Feb 2nd. Its live debut was overseas in September, and some upcoming European dates are below.

Fever Ray (aka the 1/2 of the Knife, Karin Dreijer-Andersson) will be playing this year's Coachella on Friday, April 16th. Fever Ray recently won the Year's Best Dance Artist prize at "P3 Gold" in Gothenburg. See her "acceptance speech" that many are either comparing to Lady Gaga or saying was a tribute to Lady Gaga's 'shocking' VMA appearance, with the new CD's tracklist and tour dates, below...

Fever Ray is a blessing.

That's the closest the Rongedal Twins will get to a Fever Ray collaboration.

Fever Ray is fantastic. She was doing her thing, and she does it as a real freak should. I will be downloading that single. She made a new fan.

That other corporate dance girl only wishes she could be this outre and relevant. Sorry, corporations, you can't create uniqueness in an artist you pick up off the street.

What this actually reminds me of is, Black Hole; the comic by Charles Burns, the guy who did the cover to the Fever Ray album. It's about teenage mutant freaks who have to run away from home.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
