Grapevine Airwaves 2012

October 23, 2012

IT’S HERE! IT’S FINALLY HERE! Grapevine’s Fancy Airwaves 2K12 Compilation Is Here!



Yup, as we promised in our last issue (which contained a pretty rad Airwaves-pullout, for all you Airwaves enthusiasts to enthuse over), we’ve compiled you a wonderful, fancy, insanely great compilation chock-full of some of the most awesome music you’ll hear at Iceland Airwaves 2012. And, remember, the festival itself starts in less than a week!

So you better get listening!

In case you forgot, here’s what we wrote about the compilation in our issue, and a bit of a tracklist:

Aww yes folks, it’s that time of the year! This wonderful month when Airwaves rolls around and we get to bring you not one, not two, not three, but SIXTY-FIVE terrific songs by some awesome Icelandic bands! And it makes us happy to give it out and share these great songs! If you’re flying over for the festival, we hope you’ll be listening to this on the plane! And if you’re already in town, blast it out of your boomboxes until October 31 rolls around.

Now here it is, you’re welcome, and ENJOY!!!

Download .zip file (it’s HUUUUUUGE!)

PS – All these awesome bands (and even some of the non-awesome ones) donated their tracks for your listening and downloading pleasures. That’s really goddamn cool of them, and you should respect that. Don’t rip off their music, go to their shows and buy their merch if they had the sense to make some.

And do spread the word about this compilation. All of this most excellent music needs some ears.

PPS – As our wonderful reader Hans has pointed out in a comment, we are still a whiles away from this compilation working as perfectly as we would like it to. It turns out that the files for tracks by Croisztans, Endless Dark, Funk That Shit!, Kira Kira and Two Tickets To Japan are broken! Eff! Anyway, as per Hans’ suggestion, we are compiling them in a separate .zip file for y’all to download and listen to Here it is: THE MISSING FILES.ZIP. Thank you, Hans and sorry to you, readers!

    Thanks for the compilation, especially since there are a few for me unknown bands in it. One small issue, the tracks from Croisztans, Endless Dark, Funk That Shit!, Kira Kira and Two Tickets to Japan seem to be broken. Maybe you can reupload them in a separate zip, so I (and probably others) don’t have to download the full compilation again ?

    Hi guys! Excellent job! It’s a good souvenir from the best festival in the world! The links for the 2010 and 2011 compilations are broken. Can you send it to me or reupload?

    Cheers from Brazil!
