Björk / Fever Ray / The Knife

Country Creatures

About this item

Here we have a celebration of Northern European electronics as Iceland's most famous export (except Findus Crispy Pancakes of course) Björk cooks up a cultural exchange with fellow vikings Karin & Olof Dreijer for a three tracker of ear wrecking energy. On the A-side Karin appears as Fever Ray, handing Björk the stems to xer icy electro winner "This Country Makes It Hard To Fuck". Making excellent use of an abandoned power plant, nearby Tesla coil and clanking assembly line, the former pop pixie hammers out a tough as fuck industrial cut then adds her inimitable vocals as the icing on the toxic cake. Next up, Karin gets to flex xer remix muscles with an epic, ascendent take on "Features Creatures", adding additional vocals, wild synth yelps ('member "We Share Our Mother's Health") and a whole heap of cinematic heft to the cut. Flip it and Karin teams up with xer bro Olof for a reprise of The Knife bringing a suitably techy, tribal and icy electro vibe to the same track. Brought to life with a super cool sleeve design, printed clear outer and retro-metal inner, this 12" nails both sound and vision.
