The Knife - Deep Cuts LP 2003

What is it?
Swedish brother and sister combo of Karin Andersson and Olof Dreijer present a selection of electronic euro-pop fun tunes. 

Why should you listen?
The Knife's 2003 album is instantly accessible leftfield electronic music with heavily accented vocals. It has it's moments and is worth a listen but don't expect any depth or longevity here. It's fun, original and quirky but the songs are all a bit one dimensional and 'samey.'  If you want something swedish I'd go for ABBA instead.

What's it like?
It's like candy floss; great for 5 minutes but with no staying power.

What's the best song?
"Pass this on" - you can't go wrong with steel drums.

Who does it sound like?
Nothing springs to mind, but in a similar vein there's Crystal Castles.
