As most of you are aware, it's nearly impossible to catch a live performance by Swedish brother/sister synth-pop duo The Knife. They're not only private people by nature (hence the masks), they're also so popular that should you hesitate a moment you'll be found standing ticketless in the dust of every indie kid on the planet's boots. Not to mention, the duo hasn't played many U.S. dates outside the major cities.
Keenly aware of this fact, Mute Records has put together a nice little package for those not able to see the band, the Silent Shout Deluxe Edition CD-DVD, to be released in April.
It's as good as it sounds. The three-disc set includes the Silent Shout album and a DVD of The Knife - Silent Shout: An Audiovisual Experience. The latter features an Andreas Nilsson-directed live show and music videos. Finally, a live audio CD completes the goods.
Meanwhile, the duo continues releasing material from the non-deluxe Silent Shout, with a new single due out in February. "Marble House" will get refurbished for the dancefloor by Booka Shade and Rex the Dog, then remixed again by Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) and Planningtorock. The CD version of the single also includes the track's video. The 12" features an extra remix by Booka Shade.
"Marble House" is out February 20, 2007, on Mute.
