kutsuwamushi: photo of Fever Ray being all goth (music)

Sometimes I find an artist whose work resonates so strongly with me that I'll listen obsessively until I've sunk the music so thoroughly into my mind that continuing to listen to it becomes not irritating, but redundant.

And so I'll move on and listen to other things--wildly different things. But I'll always come back to it. That's what makes it different than other songs whose appeal wanes through overplaying; those, I want to forget so I can enjoy them again like they're new. But with these songs, I listen to remind myself that I know every note.

This is of course a highly subjective thing. What I find deeply moving, others find boring and weird.

Fever Ray is Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of The Knife. Her work has a lot in common with The Knife, especially with parts of Silent Shout, which happens to be one of my favorite albums. It's suffused with a melancholy that is simultaneously otherworldly and near.

If I Had a Heart - Fever Ray
Keep the Streets Empty for Me - Fever Ray

I feel like I carry these songs around with me even when I'm not listening to them.



Take and do what you want. All I did was crop them.
