The unmistakable depth of The Knife's awe-inducing Shaking The Habitual is something to admire. But, for an album that goes so far with so many varying layers of subject material, experimentation, and re-imagination of what is possible by the medium, its somewhat taxing.
From director Marit Östberg, fans have an opportunity to look at what went into the creation of the album from the direct perspectives of Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. And, as one might expect, the process for them is much different than other artists. Internal questions of identity (the masks The Knife often wear) are asked, with Olof and Karin looking for answers rather than just expecting them. They also speak candidly about the music industry, which Karin refers to as "homogenized," and what must be done to surpass the normalcy of expectations.
