musicWATCH | The Knife

formed: 1999
from: Stockholm, Sweden
type of music: electro pop with a splash of the dark
current release: Silent Shout (March 2006 in Europe)

There's been alot of buzz about these guys around the net, so maybe I'm guilty of jumpin' on that bandwagon too, but then again I'm pretty damn picky about what I listen to. So when I heard their stuff, I was intrigued. Perhaps I'm currently into this whole Nordic music scene or something.

Pitchfork calls their current release as, "An early contender for best record of the quarter, here's hoping Silent Shout inspires similar imagination and pushing outwards..."
From what I've heard of their music so far, I'm becoming a believer as well.
