#18 Beyond Björk
Don’t get us wrong, Björk, Sigur Rós, GusGus and Of Monsters and Men are great but there’s a lot more to Icelandic music. In this episode, we’ll begin our journey into the Icelandic music landscape and introduce you to some classics, what the kids are listening to and sprinkle in a touch of techno BDSM.
We’re hoping to make this a recurring topic of discussion so don’t be dismayed if you’re not into or are already hip to the music we talk about this go around––we’ll circle back to this topic on the regular.
A little of our musical taste/background to give our listeners a sense of the filter through which we’re listening to and critiquing the music we’ll be sharing on today’s episode.
