Icelandic

In The Silence

Artist: 
Ásgeir
Label: 
One Little Indian

Aparently Ásgeir is quite a big deal in his native Iceland, outselling some of the country's biggest artists like Bjork and Sigur Ros. His debut album In The Silence is certainly nice to listen to and I can certainly understand why it's popular there and will probably soon breakthrough over here, it significantly lacks the originality and experimental nature of Sigur Ros and especially Bjork. Sure it has its innovative moments, but overall it's not the most original record.
