SONG OF THE DAY: 'A Tooth For An Eye' by The Knife
    • MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 2017

    • Posted by: Peter Hammel

    Today, the Scandinavian duo that are The Knife revealed that they will release a live version of their 2014 album Shaking The Habitual. Here's the album's opener, "A Tooth for an Eye" which kicks off a dance album that clocks in at just over ninety minutes. A disorienting three against four rhythm begins the piece, but as Karin Dreijer Andersson's shrill vocals control the melody the song cruises into four until the disorienting rhythm returns again for the outro. Plus a serious political and social commentary is buried in this track. Geographical borders, natural resources, and political leaders all become suspect. If you dig this tune, check out "Full of Fire" and "Without You My Life Would Be Boring", two heavy dance bangers topped with that Knife flair.


    A DVD of the band's Shaking The Habitual: Live at Terminal 5 will accompany the album release. Ironically, a physical copy of the duo's performance at Terminal 5 will not be available in the United States until the group and their label come to an agreement after a lingering dispute. The film will be streamable from The Knife's website, and a few of their instruments from the show (including a harp and bell) will be auctioned starting August 30th to benefit the No One Is Illegal Network.
