I ODed on hiphop today, so getting a chance to hear this Icelandic compilation album while I cook dinner is a nice change of pace. There’s something special about the sound coming out of Iceland right now. It’s got the enormity of classical music while still capturing something intimate and natural. I guess that’s what happens when stuff like this happens in your country.

Who wants to go to Iceland with me?
