Found Sounds pick #10: Isn't It Now by Animal Collective

BW Staff Pick: Radical Romantics, the new record by Swedish electronic artist Fever Ray, is a ghastly and groove-forward return for groundbreaking performer Karin Dreijer. Formerly one half of the celebrated sibling duo, The Knife, their brother Olof returns to produce four tracks on the new record, alongside contributions from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Don’t miss a BW interview with Dreijer next week ahead of their performance at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium on Nov. 10.  – Jezy J. Gray, arts and culture editor
