Miike Snow is not a man. Miike Snow is, in fact, two men: the band alias of Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, whose CD sleeves are annoyingly damage-prone cut-outs of the mythical jackalope.

Vocals - Kathleen Hanna
My teenage years were filled with the sound of Bikini Kill. I love Kathleen's voice. I would want her shouty shrieks and screams all over this band. Her politico-sexual female empowerment is just what this band needs.

Watch Me Fall, his second solo album, is no departure. Reatard, real identity Jay Lindsey of Memphis, typically makes a Buzzcockian power-pop racket with fuzzy synth chords behind his blur-wristed guitar thrashing, and there's a case to be made that when you've heard one you've heard 'em all. In practice it's like opening a packet of Haribo - before you know it you're a dozen down
