The Knife's new forthcoming album "Shaking the Habitual" only has 2 more weeks to go. I don't know about you guys, but I am so so so excited for this. The Knife pretty much pioneered my most beloved subgenre of music.

Their second single "A Tooth for an Eye" was released two weeks ago. It's nothing short of amazing for them. Recently, they posted the meaning behind it. It think it's rather applicable here too.

"'A Tooth For An Eye' deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedomÍž There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring "I'm telling you stories, trust me". There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago."





So much love for these guys.
