A thing of beauty.

Friday Music

I feel like sharing some Icelandic music today, and I'm really into Kaleo at the moment. These Icelandic guys have been friends since they were kids in Mosfellsbær, and three of the four band members have been playing together for years. I like their settled, mature sound and tight rhythm, and you can really hear the influence of the classic blues rock they've listened to. I love the lead singer's voice, he's got his own unique sound, but with homage to a lot of 50's and 60's singers, rock screams and even an occasional Elvis stutter. Kaleo has a simple, straightforward but very high quality sound. To me, they sound like they could be from Memphis, but with a little bit of subtle Icelandic twist.

This band can really rock, but it was actually their beautiful single of the classic Icelandic folk song Vor í Vaglaskógi that was their first huge hit in Iceland. Kaleo's first album was released this summer, and they are all over Icelandic radio, everybody knows their songs and sings along. But the band is actually based in the U.S. now, and I suspect they're on the edge of a big breakthrough here too. They seem to have a lot of fun playing live, so here are two videos you might enjoy:

The haunting "Way Down We Go" was recorded live, way WAY down at the bottom of an Icelandic volcano. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WIU5NN1Q0g The logistics of this recording are fascinating to watch, even if you don't like the music :)

Or if you feel like turning your drudge work into a TGIF dance workout, here's the southern roadhouse-style "No Good" .. filmed in Nashville and apparently featured on the trailer for HBO's Vinyl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMDq4CGckW4

This French version of the English original text is a tad rickety (for a start it should be "partenaires européens" (with an 's') in the title to be grammatically correct... Do revert to the English original if the translation(s) jar too much.

His is a job that proves art matters more than ever to the binary world of technology. This is why.
