New Album Review: "Radical Romantics" by Fever Ray (8/10)

When it comes to the arts, being anomalous remains an advantage. As a nonbinary, Swedish creator, Karin Dreijer possesses this quality in spades. The performer’s uniqueness has attracted valuable company, including Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails, who contribute to “Even It Out” on this follow-up to 2017’s Plunge. On that track and every other, the idiosyncratic composer entrances with transcendental swirls and ominous rumbles. – Andy Kaufmann
