GETTING PAST THAT I-REALLY-WANNA-

how to know when you've grown up: you find Time magazine funnier than Vice. of course, the first one isn't trying to be funny. but that's beside the point.

I recently found myself defending the fact that i do like electronic music, just not most of it. well here's an example of what i do like. The Knife hail from stockholm and have found a nice niche of a modern electronic sound mixed with hints of Dream Academy. catchy, head-bobbing, and infectious. show some white underbelly as you listen to this. it's okay, really.

• The Knife - Heartbeats

look ma! i got myspaced!

support sharp things in your pocket, buy music

  3. wow. tough comments from "anonymous" always make me quake in my boots. I'll be celebrating my 10 year anniversary of being a transplant soon, maybe mr. tough-guy wants to come to the party? oh wait, he'll probably be hanging out in a basement in jersey playing video games with other honkies-in-denial, sorry.

    have the balls to put a name to your words, or just keep it in the background, bad-ass.

  4. José González (another swede) has done a very good cover on that song.

    He is also known from the Sony commercial (I think it's for their new tv, bravia)
