A call to arms from The Skull Defekts. Dances In Dreams Of The Known And Unknown is a dense nine tracker from the Swedes. Blending the mediums of punk and metal with scandinavian folkloric tribalism to make a record of total darkness. They mush distorted guitars, warmongering drums and melodic spoken word with sinister electronics. Out on CD from Thrill Jockey.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 30th August 2016
The Skull Defekts just get it. The group is helmed by Joachim Nordwall, one of Europe's preeminent sonic explorers. His avant-leaning tendencies make for an incredibly deep listen for a traditional rock record. On Dances in Dreams of the Known Unknown, the Defekts combine overblown tribalism, hyper-melodic 90s oriented alt rock, and sharp technical prowess. Daniel Higgs (the official Lord of all Zones) from Lungfish sings on a few of the album's best tracks. His presence casts the perfect amount of spaciness over the album's vibe.
