There have always been natural brute forces coursing through Karin Dreijer Andersson's musical creations. With witchy vocals reining over gales of synthesized elements, eerie seismic pulses, and icy rhythmic landscapes, both The Knife and Fever Ray sound the product of cataclysmic elements. Big things happen in her music...catastrophic musical events.

Which makes her contribution to the We Are The Works in Progress compilation appropriate. The album (which we told you about earlier this month) was conceived by Blonde Redhead to help lend a hand to ongoing tsunami relief efforts in Japan.

The song Andersson donated to the album is called "No Face" and was sourced from The Wolf Hour; an Ingmar Bergman play Karin provided the soundtrack for. Not surprisingly, its pure mood music, with illegible yet hypnotic vocals laced across a rapturous fissure of metallic electronic work. Like the title, the "song" is truly faceless, providing no melodies or hooks in which to grasp. Just a heap of abstract power; a fitting musical metaphor for last spring's disastrous, natural events in Japan.

Listen to the track over at Disco Naivette.
