Album Review: Bjork – Bastards (2012)

Inspired by the National Geographic to create her previous album entitled “Biophilia”, we give you Bjork. The Icelandic singer and iconic Pop-Artist whose demiurgic expertise amplifies sheer music has come out of the studio with another album to complement her last project.

The album, entitled “Bastards” is not your typical post-album remix edition that most “Neolithic-Artists” used to put on the “B” sides of their single albums. The music expressed in this album is so much more than that; that the remixes gave the original versions a different atmospheric vibe. So much so in fact, that I think it’s a different sounding album altogether.

-On a Pitchfork Interview-

Bjork said, “I felt it important to gather together the essence of the remixes” “The mixes took Biophilia somewhere else while still keeping its character.” “Gave the songs more beats; legs to dance on.”

For the most part as an avid listener and in my opinion I would have to agree with that.

With a collected contribution by 16-Bit, Omar Souleymon, Death Grips, The Slips, Alva Noto, These New Puritans, and other artist; the album is sure to draw in and attract new Bjork listeners. The songs that receive the most attention are “Crystalline”, “Virus” and “Mutual Core”.

“So when can I see her?” you might ask…Currently Bjork is in Paris, France getting ready to perform at “Le Cirque En Chantier.” Tour dates are yet to be announced in the United States as she is on tour in the U.K. In the meantime feel free to purchase the album from any of your local music retailers or listen online. Keep your ears peeled like an orange. She will be here soon!
