a few things relating to The Knife
First of all, Amrit posted some amazing photos of The Knife's performance at the Oya Festival over at Stereogum that you must check out. Apparently, this was only the duo's 8th live performance ever. As you probably know by now, they've announced their first ever U.S. dates, and after seeing those photos, and hearing the intensity of this Silent Shout-ified live version of "Kino" (taken from the "We Share Our Mother's Health" import single):
...I've decided I'm going to one of the the three shows. Just not sure which one yet, although I'm leaning towards either the San Francisco or New York dates. Any help in deciding would be appreciated.
Also, don't forget to check out gorilla vs. bear Blog Radio on SIRIUS Left of Center tonight at 10 Eastern. I'll be playing the aforementioned song, as well as new stuff from Holy Shit, Dirty Projectors, and more. I even got Bloc Party to do a little drop for me, complete with theme music from an old-school Indianapolis 500 pinball machine (pictured above). Check it out if you're extremely bored:
