Thread: Just started listening to The Knife.

  1. #1

    Default Just started listening to The Knife.

    is there any other artists that I am truly missing out on?

    the record itself is enjoyable and I mean... shit what I am missing out on otherwise?

    maybe Boards of Canada. still haven't gotten around to that.

    yeah listen to Boards of Canada. Music has a Right to Children is their best album, then listen to Geogaddi and then Campfire Headphase. You may also like Royksopp, they are the closest thing to the Knife that I can think of.

    If you have not heard Silent Shout, go listen to it now. It blows their S/T album out of the water.

    Yes. Deep Cuts is about 10 times better than Silent Shout.

    Campfire might be a good one for a beginner to get in on. I think it is the most accessible. You definitely need Music Has the Right... and Geogaddi, as well. I HIGHLY recommend that you also pick up the Skam/Hi Scores EP. That doesn't get much attention but it is amazing.

    They're one of the most requested bands. Do you think they'll play?

    I'm not huge on electronic music, but they are unique.
    They remind me of Portishead and Cocteau Twins...
    Both of whom I like very much

    Keep in mind Neutral Milk Hotel and Boards of Canada are requested ad nauseum around here every year. And that hasn't led to anything.

    "Heartbeats" is possibly my favorite song EVER.

    Deep Cuts and Silent Shout are two completely different albums but they are both excellent. Deep Cuts may have some of the better individual tracks but I think I like Silent Shout as a whole more. Deep Cuts is more of a pop album with more upbeat songs. Silent Shout is a little darker but still has some really catchy rhythms and melodies.

    Amy, it's more about the live show than the albums. They have the best live show I've ever seen in my life.

    Yeah, yeah, I know. I figure I will try to see them live if I get a chance, but I wish I liked the music more. The chick sounds like a dying cat.

    Get the Deluxe Edition of Silent Shout. It has a DVD of a live performance that is spectacular. It also includes all of their videos from every album. Well worth the $15.00 on Amazon.

    Seriously, though, I dont get where you people find the comparison between the Knife and Royksopp...

    In terms of electronic artists, check out:
    - The Grid
    - Boys Noize
    - The Field

    In terms of recent releases. That is all.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    I downloaded the new album on a whim. It's pretty different... Reminds me of a more disco version of Booka Shade.

    Deep Cuts is the best album of the knife so far... and the comparisons between both Royksopp and the Knife might be because Karin Dreijer is the one who does vocals on What Else is There..

    "Heartbeats" is really great and would probably be twice as great live and especially has an incredible beat.
