It’s always a gamble if you hear some unusual music, like it and buy the CD with only having heard one song. I’ve had a few experiences where I end up with a CD with one marvellous piece on it – or one piece which I really like, and then the rest either duffs or not to my taste.
Here on WordPress I came across a video with some music by an Icelandic artist which I really liked; I found the CD was a collection of Icelandic musicians and bought it… It has arrived, I’ve played it, I love it! There are a couple of strange sounding pieces, but strange because they are an unfamiliar style, and I think I might come to really like them… not sure about the one which sounds like a troll singing Tibetan mantras…
The artists are Ragnheiður Gröndal, Steintryggur, Maus, Laurence Revey, Pétur Ben, Storsveit Nix Noltes,Rökkurró, Lost in Hildurness, My Summer As A Salvation Soldier, Eivør Pálsdóttir, Steindór Andersen & Sigur Rós and Ingibjörg Þorbergs… I have only heard of Sigur Rós before… but I think I shall be looking for albums for some of these other singers too!
So which was the singer I really liked? I have to say I don’t remember!
