- Mercy Street / Dry & Dusty by Fever Ray
8/10 Brian Staff review, 24 September 2010
Here spooky pop chanteuse Fever Ray (aka the lassie from The Knife as everyone already knows) turns her warbly talents towards covering Peter Gabriel's 'Mercy Street'. I dunno, this just sounds a bit of a plod-a-thon with it's head firmly wedged between the buttcheeks of the 80's. It sounds like Berlin, Kate Bush's cast-offs & Shakespeare's Sister. I think it's because it's a Gabriel tune so it's got that worthy, mid tempo plod thing happening. Production, however, is flash & contemporary thus impressive. The flip side is far, far more preferable & sounds just like classic early Knife or one of the much better tunes off her album. I hate to keep using the word cosmic but this is a sensual, cosmic ballad, full of wonder & an eerie magic. So it's still worth a recommendation on the strength of that one tune!
