The Knife - Shaking The Habitual
I listened to the new The Knife album. Several times. I figured that if siblings presented a few tracks of the classics of the genre on this album, which are not just ambient interludes (since almost all of them take the few minutes), this record should be reviewed here, on eyebient. So, I review this part of the album you can tag as ambient music. You can not accuse The Knife of dilettantism in terms of modern ambient music. Yes, they are oriented and it’s pretty good. But why they record tracks of which sound oscillates less than on the level of the average ambient artists beginners? Do unremarkable piece that is anointed by the brilliant (so far) band should be considered as a better one cause they tried new genre? Do not kid yourself, this album sparkles with tacky ideas and shocks with its secondariness. Perhaps for someone who only heard Hecker and Oneohtrix Point Never in terms of ambient music recently, ‘Shaking The Habitual’ will not disappoint even with the amateurish approach to the subject or even this kind of children’s approach meet with enthusiasm. The culmination of unforgivable sins is ‘Fracking Fluid Injection’. As the comment I suggest listening to Megafortress ‘My Favorite Girl’, which was released on the EP more than one year ago. It’s hard not to get to the malice but I have to comment: what will be next in ambient music? Brian Eno played by Coco Rosie toys?
