I’ve got a few questions: first, why do so many great artists come from Iceland? Secondly, why are so many of them interrelated? For example, one of my most anticipated releases of ’07 is Bjork’s Volta. Another release I’m looking forward to is Sigur Ros’ new album. Now, Bjork worked with Sigur Ros at one point, who worked with Amiina (who I’ve already raved about), who worked with Efterklang. I just received ‘Towards The Bare Hill’, the fourth song off of Efterklang’s upcoming EP, Under Giant Trees, and it already sounds like Efterklang fit in with Iceland’s finest. With it’s haunting vocals, and massive instrumentation, ‘Towards The Bare Hill’ is a hard track to forget. Highly recommended.
