Karin Dreijer Andersson has a day job in the icy cool Swedish electro pop duo the Knife. Taking a break from that project, Andersson is stepping out with Fever Ray. The self-titled album came out this week and is stoking some serious critical accolades, including from PopMatters. As Ian Mathers says today in a review of the record, “With the Knife on hiatus,  Andersson crafts something even more all-encompassing and darkly compelling than [The Knife’s] Silent Shout.” “When I Grow Up” is her new video from Fever Ray and features haunting Björk-ish vocals amongst a spare arrangement of dark synths and the artist writhing around in tribal garb on a diving board.

Psychedelia has influenced so many things in 2009 -- whether the band is labeled freak-folk, psych-pop, or garage psychedelia to name a few -- that the creative approach to songwriting has influenced and been adopted by so many genres that barely any independent label has remained untouched by its reaches.
