Högni Egilsson is omnipresent in Icelandic pop music. He has been part of electronic music pioneers and legends GusGus. Probably he even still is, but it’s never really safe to say, and at least at this year’s Airwaves he had been missed on stage during GusGus’ performance at Listasafn Reykjavíkur. He is (or was) also part of Hjaltalín, one of the most remarkable bands of the ongoing decade in Iceland.
Ok, in the unlikely event that you have not yet realized it as a lover of Icelandic popular music, Iceland Airwaves is upon us. Consider this festival as Christmas, Easter, New Year’s Eve and your birthday party with 9000 friends altogether – but for a duration of five days. Now, if you’re like “come on, […]
On Air of CW 04-2016: We just go on within our “On Air” series with the most recent addition to KEXP’s live broadcasts from Airwaves 15.

On Air of CW 03-2016: Outside the KEX hostel you’d almost think the people queue up around the block one and a half times. Hundrets of them are still trying to come in and catch a spot. But they fail to do so as the room is already packed as if it would burst at […]

On Air of CW 52-2015: What is going on here? A lasciviously rouged dude, skin-tight leather pants, topless, sings, screams and dances heavily at the audience and another singer, dressed in a coat and wearing a tremendous beard? The saxophonist’s sweater reads “Micky Mouse Fight Club”.
On Air of CW 51-2015: If Quentin Tarantino came to Iceland to look for a band that would perfectly fit the soundtrack of his next movie, he might choose Mono Town most likely. The three piece band from Reykjavík made quite some noise in the Icelandic music scene when they released their self-produced debut album “In […]
On Air of CW 50-2015: I´m unconditionally in love with Emmsjé Gauti since I saw him live at Kex Hostel during Airwaves 2015. It is no coincidence that he is my number two at the Top 10 Airwaves Moments. Now I tell you which Song you should listen to. He is capable of thrilling not […]
