Almost exactly four years have passed, since Sigur Rós played their last concert at Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt.

If you would ask me about my opinion on the most beautiful beard of Iceland’s music scene, I’d have to make my decision between two in the end. And it would definitely be a tough decision. Both Berndsen and Teitur Magnússon have grown downright masterpieces on and around their faces. At the mere sight, I lose […]
One man, one guitar, and a microphone. Less is not possible, but also nothing more than this is necessary. On a rainy Sunday, great Icelandic Singer-Songwriter Júníus Meyvant plays a gig in Ampere in Munich. In the beginning he announces to play 620 songs.
