Default The Knife? Royksopp?

I want to know a little bit more about the two bands. The Knife is apparently the biggest thing in Sweden, and "Heartbeats" is a really catchy number.

Royskopp, is Norwegian I think...?... I don't own any of their albums, but just from the songs I have heard, the earlier album Melody AM is a bit better than their newer material.

i've downloaded the new album from royksopp because i really liked that bear song from the first album....but i have concluded it's not really my cup of tea....especially since they have started to include really lame vocals...

and if i'm not mistaken, jose gonzalez did a remake of heartbeats...exellent song...

Royksopp have been around a while. Worth checking out all their stuff, but an aquired taste. A bit... hazy.

The Knife is already in the running for best electronica album of the year by many people. I'm not that big into them but you should certainly check them out!

I finally decided to listen to their latest album today, and I totally agree with this.

We Share Our Mothers Health is nothing short of amazing, but the best track has to be Silent Shout, the melody is just so class

WHAT WLSE IS THERE?

It was me on that road
But you couldn't see me
Too many lights on, but nowhere near here

It was me on that road
Still you couldn't see me
And then flashlights and explosions

Roads are getting nearer
We cover distance but not together
I am the storm and I am the wonder
And the flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

I don't know what more to ask for
I was given just one wish

It's about you and the sun
A morning run
The story of my maker
What I have and what I ache for

I've got a golden ear
I cut and I spear
And what else is there
Roads are getting nearer
We cover distance still not together

If I am the storm if I am the wonder
Will I have flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

There's no room that I can go and
You've got secrets too

i don't know what more to ask for
i was given just one wish

ROYSKOPP ROCKS!!!
