Björk - "Crystalline"

Björk has not been one to shy away from experimentation in her musical escapades.  From cave-soul to glitch-folk, she has been exploring, borrowing from and inventing genres ever since she began her carreer as a quirky pop-singer in Iceland.  Red Cup has always been an admirer of her work, but usually from a distance.  With her new single from her upcoming iPad app album "Biophilia", however, we are finally listening up close.  "Crystalline" initially meanders through an eerie bell melody, hesitant electronic percussion and Björk's haunting voice, until the end when the song finally finds release and culminates in one of the most original drum & bass breaks we have heard in a very long time.  Listen below:
