Retro-Review: “Knives Don’t Have Your Back” by Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton
Emily Haines’s proper studio debut album outside of Metric is a sparse, piano-driven soundscape with Emily’s throaty voice front and center. The themes touched upon deal with success, loss and death. A superb creation that needs a proper follow-up, stat.
Best tracks: “Our Hell,” “Doctor Blind,” “The Maid Needs A Maid,” “Reading In Bed”
