Icelandic music is more than Björk. Not that Björk isn’t enough, but the kind of original sounds coming from that ashen island are addictive. For instance, Mum. If you’re in need of a pick up listen to There is any number of small things. I just love this band. Love, love, love, and Yesterday Was Dramatic-Today is Okay has been one of my favourite albums for a few years now. But there’s more. Samples from the new album are very promising indeed. You can hear samples here and here for Summer Make Good.
Oh, and Emiliana Torrini is also great. She’s an entirely different experience, however, a cross between Björk and, well, maybe Sarah Harmer? Thanks to the Iceland Weather Report for that recommendation.
