sibling rivalry

I plan to spend a lot of quality time with Shaking the Habitual from The Knife because I haven't quite gotten a good handle on it yet. This is not an album to listen to while multitasking at work. I do know that I heard parts I really love + parts that were perhaps just a little to odd for me. But more on that another day.

Right now I want to focus on the fascinating Dreijer siblings that together make up The Knife. You rarely see them in public, but when you do, they're typically in some costume or mask of sorts. They hate award shows + are against commercialism. 

They've each done their own solo work -- Karin with her exquisite work on Fever Ray + Olof with his lesser known work as DJ Coolof + Oni Ayhun. His work as Oni Ayhun was unknown to me until recently, but it's pretty great + worth a listen.
