Music That I Leik’d 2012: Icelandic Pink Slime Roll Call….

02 Jan

Yup now that the year is over, its time for the annual flogathon that is DA END OF YEAR LISTS. Despite all our moaning, we all love lists really. It’s a chance for us anally retentive types to get all obsessive about placings and numbers and stuff, as well as it sparking a healthy fightargument, discussion in the pub about it all.

So not ambling, no explanations (You seriously don’t need any by now). Here is my list of what was Icelandic in 2012 that made me go, “Hmmmm…..”

FEELING

moses hightower - Önnur Mósesbók

Valgeir Sigurðsson - Architecture Of Loss

Subminimal - Microfluidics

Þórir Georg - Jánuar

CELESTINE - Celestine

REALLY FEELING

Ghostigital - Division Of Culture & Tourism

Brák - Tómhyggja

Hypno - Kancourde/K2

Legend - Fearless

The heavy experience - Slowscope

LIKE, OMG, IT´S AS IF THEY OPENED ME UP, DIRECTLY INSERTED THE MUSIC STUFFS INTO ME, AND CONVERSED WITH MY SOUL, ETC, ETC…. 

MUCK - SLAVES

Hjaltalín - Enter 4

Retro Stefson – Retro Stefson

Sin Fang – Summer Echoes EP

Beneath – Enslaved By Fear

    Glad to see someone else not swept off their feet by Valtari!

      Actually, a lot of people were not that impressed, but they’ll never admit it on record!
