Perhaps a bit of a generalisation, but Scandanavian music seems to be hitting the mark more and more for me over the past year or so…Little Dragon, Those Dancing Days, Blue Foundation, Ida Maria, and potentially my favourite track of the year so far from Lindstrom & Christabelle.
This song is from another Swedish electronic duo, The Knife, who’ve actually been around for more than 10 years – they originally formed in 1999.
It opens with a sound effect-style intro and is, in my mind, perfect for a Terminator attack build-up scene unfolding into a full-on chase sequence… it’s also perfect for Met-line tube dancing.
I also recently came across Colouring of Pigeons on Stereogum, which is from a collaborative album with Mt. Sims called Tomorrow In A Year (to be released on Mute on March 6). Starts fairly strangely but evolves into a wonderfully dramatic epic of a song. Give it about 3min 8s…
