Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton - Knives Don't Have Your Back mp3 album
Emily Haines is so thoroughly the public face of the dance-happy neo-wavers Metric that the idea of a solo album seems redundant at first. As it turns out, however, Knives Don't Have Your Back is utterly unique, far removed not only from Metric's often-hyper pulse but also from atmospheric post-rock gems like Broken Social Scene's gorgeous "Anthems for a 17-Year-Old Girl," still likely the song Haines is best known for overall. Members of both bands do appear here, but the focus of Knives Don't Have Your Back is strictly on Haines' vocals and piano.

Knives Don't Have Your Back is the debut studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton.

In 2006, Haines released the studio album Knives Don't Have Your Back, under the moniker "Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton". The songs "Our Hell" and "Doctor Blind" were issued as singles and corresponding music videos were produced I found myself with a body of work that was dealing with a whole whack of themes that really weren't suited to Metric
Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). Only 19 left in stock (more on the way). The sound of The Soft Skeleton is a subtle change from Metric. Fewer power beats that Metric is great at, but I am convinced that anything with Emily Haines amazing voice would be good music.
Emily Haines' breathy voice lacks range and sometimes character; her piano-playing could do with more embellishing; her lyrics stick to shattered relationships, depression and wasted time. What Haines does have, however, is an alchemist's mastery of the minor key, a way with smudgy, melancholy melodies that gives her album a lambent gleam. At her best - in Doctor Blind, Nothing and Nowhere, and particularly Crowd Surf Off a Cliff - she luxuriates in sadness so seductively, the effect is almost narcotic.
The album was released in September 2006 on Last Gang Records. Emily Haines is so thoroughly the public face of the dance-happy neo-wavers Metric – quite literally, in that her fetching blonde looks are the basis of both of the band's album covers so far – that the idea of a solo album seems redundant at first.

Haines doesn't take a predictable route to the inside of your head. No grandstanding. She's true daughter of the revolution, and has inherited wisdom beyond her years. So how does she reach us? By quietly closing the stage door behind her, dodging the limelight glare for now. She slips around the edge of the stage, almost deasappears, keeps to the shadows like her parents taught her, then is suddenly positioned right beside your ear. She's speaking your language but don't be so sure you know what she's thinking - this might be all in code. She's drawn in breath and drawn you in, too. You're hooked but it's not her fault : may be she was just saying "Hello." - Robert Wyatt.
