I really felt ashamed this morning, when i was looking for a great misty monday artist i thought, it has to be someone like Ólafur Arnalds.....dreamful quiet nicely arranged floating away music. Wait a minute, Ólafur hasn't been on Møpkemuziek before! Ólafur Arnalds is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Mosfellsbær, Iceland. Ólafur Arnalds mixes strings and piano with loops and edgy beats crossing-over from ambient/electronic to pop. He's just released his new album "For now I am winter" and the song "Only the Winds" is perfect as a starter. There will be shurely again a very nice video with this song because that seems to be his trademark. Let's take a look at "Old Skin" ft Arnor Dan Another jewel is Near Light
okay let's listen and look to some live footage, in this video he's playing for KEXP in KEX Hostel in Reykjavik during Iceland Airwaves. Recorded on November 1, 2012. I like the funny stories between the songs about the roads in Poland and the song he wrote for a bathtub :), enjoy.
