the Knife - We Share Our Mother's Health

Listening to the Knife, you'd be surprised to know that they band is huge in their native Sweden. They even recently won the Swedish equivalent of the Grammy, and this album debuted #1 on the Swedish charts. God bless the company who finally released this album in North America. This is probably the oddest sounding band to ever make it that high on the charts. "We Share Our Mother's Health" could be the best fucked-up dance track of the year. Trust me this is no ABBA, though we can all dream. Though being incredibly poppy, the Knife have an odd sense of experimentation that makes this album an amazing listen. Playing with odd beats, and warped vocals, they remind me of the dark electronic, techno-flavoured sounds of Ladytron. Do yourself a favour, go to Sweden.

Bonus Track - Neverland

sorry, but there are no "techno-flavors" to ladytron.

have you ever actually heard techno? as in, what people who regularly listen to electronic dance music call techno?
