As if The Knife's Silent Shout wasn't hauntingly cold enough to start with. Castanets (Raymond Raposa) has put a spine-chilling avantfolk twist on one of the perkier numbers on Silent Shout, Like A Pen. His strained vocals enveloped by swathing background synthnoises combine perfectly to create a superb rendition of a superb original. Castanets has a forthcoming album due to be released on Asthmatic Kitty.
