Band of the Week: The Knife

Sweden's The Knife are really quite strange, but, really, really wonderfully so. Their earlier releases were infectuous oddities that seemed like they were from the same planet Bjork is from, but their latest album Silent Shout is more unique, more bizarre, and somehow … more accessible, too.

But the best way to share them is probably just to let you experience them for yourself, via two videos. The first is for We Share Our Mother’s Health off of Silent Shout and is directed by Brooklyn-based visual artist Motomichi Nakamura. The second is the creepily charming Pass This On off the cd Deep Cuts.

The Knife are playing The El Rey Theatre here in LA on Saturday, November 4th. Tickets are $24 and the venue is located at 5515 Wilshire Blvd.
