I'm Kevin not kephin.

You will find, for the most part, Iceland-related things on this blog and generally music that I like.

If you want to know more about me then I suggest that you ask questions.

I reuploaded a few things to soundcloud that I had meant to do a long long time ago. This is one of those things.

fuckyeahicelandicmusic:

Artist: Slowblow (feat. Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir)
Song: Phantom Of My Organ
Album: Slowblow

In my opinion, one of the best Slowblow songs out there. I don’t know if it’s the presence of Kristín’s sweet little voice that makes me love this album so much, but wow. It is such a gorgeous winter Sunday afternoon listen. This isn’t Sunday, but I’m not at work, there is a snow storm outside and I’m cooking soup, so this fits my mood perfectly.

I’ve said it before but I’m gonna say it again: everyone should listen to slowblow

Icelandic musicians, I tell you. They know what’s up.

samaris always takes me back to iceland. even more than sigur ros does.

Sólstafir - Fjara

Þetta er það lengsta sem ég fer.

Aldrei aftur samur maður er.

Ljöta leiðin heillar nú á ný,

daginn sem ég lífið aftur flý.

Haven’t listened to this since November easily and now I’m just thinking of the little release party Borko had for the album in the back of KEX after his set. What a great time.

Some Iceland Airwaves stuff


I thought since I haven’t said fucking anything about that trip I went on to Iceland, I might as well start with a list of all the gigs I’ve ever been to. It grew somewhat since being at Airwaves so why not? Here it is, broken up into Airwaves and Not Airwaves… (I will post more things later)

chlofun:

“All I got left is one awkward embrace,
My last aim for a smile on your face…”

Because I rather love lo-fi Icelandic music. Actually, I just love Icelandic music.
There’s a depth to it that just isn’t present in the music from this country, or American music, or French, or Swiss… You get the idea.

This is “Aim for a Smile” by Icelandic lo-fi folk/electro duo Slowblow.
They started up in 1994, and from what I’ve heard, their sound has changed very little since then. They still favour the warm, “home-made” feel.
This song, among others really stands out for me, because all though it is fairly lo-fi, definitely not a perfect recording, they’ve still managed to get that vast, expansive feel that seems to be present in a lot of Icelandic records.


And they whistle on a lot of their tracks. That’s always a nice touch. 

more people should listen to slowblow
