Awww shit, it’s finally here. Seven years after releasing the stone-classic Silent Shout, the Knife are about to drop their rabidly anticipated follow-up album Shaking The Habitual on the world. After letting us hear “Full Of Fire” and “A Tooth For An Eye” (and read their manifesto), the Knife are now streaming the entire intimidating slab of an album, along with eye-bleeding pink blinky graphics, at Pitchfork or below. So: What do you guys think? Does it hold up to expectations? Could it possibly ever hold up to expectations? Has your entire view of the universe been rearranged since you hit play? Take it up in the comments section.
Shaking The Habitual is out 4/9 on Mute.
