A great set from James Blake. The more I listen to his music the more I like it. This set also includes an interview :) (there seems to be a slight error with the tagging as for me the interview was at the last track, So he says he will play more songs and then it finishes! :) Superb sound quality

Fljúgðu (Victory Rose) - Sigur Rós - 1st ever song [FLAC]

The first ever song recorded by Sigur Rós!
I thought it would be nice to give you the opportunity to hear it in its full glory. Over the years there have been many requests. Also the post is, kind of in honor of its name sake, the song that gave rise to one of the most extraordinary bands of this century...oh, and this blog :D

Sóley - KEX Hostel, Iceland Airways 11.10.2011

I have soft spot for Sóley at the moment. Her recent album 'We Sink' is lovely. As a member of the Icelandic Band Seabear she is carving a name for herself as a solo artist in that wonderful 'Icelandic Music Market' which is producing a torrent of intuitive and interesting music right now.
3 songs here, quite stripped down to their acoustic bare bones. Gives her wonderful Icelandic accent a prominent place here :p

Set List:

1 Smashed Birds
2 The Sun is Going Down
3 I'll Drown

Parachutes - Tour EP - FLAC

A somewhat bittersweet post. Hearing Parachutes in their full un-compressed glory is both a wonderful and sad experience. Wonderful in that it sounds simply glorious, sad in the knowing that the band no longer exists and if the forthcoming album would have sounded anything as great as these few tracks it would have something quite special. Anyway, enjoy :)
