I discovered Fever Ray this weekend on Pitchfork and Billy and I are hooked. The solo album of Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson of The Knife, I dig the sound a lot more than The Knife. This video is super trippy and it probably doesn’t help that I’m technically still sleeping right now. You can listen to the album here on pitchfork on the lala music player on the right side of the page.
I’m also obsessively listening to the new Animal Collective, which I know has been out for a few months, but it took me a few ipod listens walking to work to realize it’s pure brilliance. I don’t know if anything will top this in ’09. My Girls makes me heart race with excitement, and I didn’t think their lyrics could ever make me feel all mushy inside like these do. I’m sure you’ve seen this but hey, you should listen if you haven’t.
I have a crazy go nuts day ahead of me so I’m signing off for the day.
