It's easy to forget that Fever Ray’s eponymous debut LP somewhat blindsided the alternative musicsphere when it first emerged in 2009. Previously known for xer work in The Knife, this album saw Karin Dreijer strike out on xer own with a collection of eerie, shapeshifting synthetic pop. The slew of comparisons to Björk which accompanied ‘Fever Ray’s initial release are somewhat correct if also very lazy. Contemporaneous records from Glasser and Forest Swords feel closer to the mark.
