Crowd at Harpa by Hörður Sveinsson

The Absolutely, Unquestionably, Very Best Of Airwaves 2013!

We did it again (oops). We did it again. It was a tough one, what with the one hundred thousand bands each playing three shows per night for fifteen consecutive nights at eight thousand venues spread throughout the gargantuan R...

Confusing, Lovely, Twerking, Pre-Flight Entertainment

I will hand it to the six Icelandic guys in wifebeaters known as UMTBS for performing on a very high energy level to a room of full of tired and hungover people, and enjoying doing it. They shredded, they shrieked, they press...

Very Solid! – Iðnó pt. 1

It was an early start at Iðnó on Saturday. The band Vigri went on stage just after seven o’clock and played extremely melodic and well crafted electronic music. The vocal arrangements were nothing short of dazzling and ...

“…Then The Bass Came In” – Harlem Pt. 2

Venue impressions: very hand painted, intimate feel. Feels like a lot of DIY loft venues I’ve been to in NY, so mission accomplished I guess. Great stuff to be looking at if one were to be flipping out on hallucinogens, I...

An Acceptable Night Out In The Cold – Hressó Pt. 1

Sitting down in a booth at Hressó, like so many times before, I raised an eyebrow as a female led group joyfully played through pop songs on stage, smiling from ear to ear – this didn’t sound at all like what I imagined Sv...

Colour Me Impressed – Iðnó Part Two

Belgian outfit Girls In Hawaii ran a very tight ship in the packed Iðnó, regularly engaging with the crowd and getting them to swoon from side to side. During their performance, the indie-rock band showed that they had a mul...

Night At The Museum

I don't believe you can underestimate the importance of fun in a live show. It's probably a cliché but if performers look like they're having fun, there's no doubt it rubs off on those around. Of course it takes more than this...

Icelandic Hiphop Exists!

Cell 7 is adept at the braggadocio expected of rappers these days, but also demonstrates lyrical depth: "I represent to the fullest, I'm a feminist." As far as the Icelandic acts of the night went, I am pleased to say she was h...

Harlem Shakes

Music You Can Sit To

As the set continues Hausswolff and her band prove themselves masters of texture, which ranges from ominous, to somber, and finally hopeful. They're not in a hurry to get there though. They know a journey is in the traveling, n...
