The Knife – Shaken-Up Versions

Taking some of their best tracks and breaking them down, the remix EP Shaken-Up Versions offers an alternate take on eight of The Knife’s songs. With tracks like the moody “Silent Shout” and the bouncy “Bird” stripped of their defining elements, the mini-album mostly just serves to remind how fantastic the source material is. Karin Dreijer Andersson’s vocals are laid bare over simplistic beats and shrill synthesizers. It’s immediately jarring. The complex, jam-inspired sounds of Shaking the Habitual are broken down to their core, and the outré pop of Silent Shout is stripped of its character.
