Almost exactly four years have passed, since Sigur Rós played their last concert at Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt. Some festival shows were following, but beside that, there was no other way to experience the trio around front man Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson in Germany. Now on 14.10.2017, the Icelanders returned to the same ground as in 2013. As announced, no opening act was brought, as I Break Horses at the last Sigur Rós concert in Frankfurt. Instead of this: four new songs embedded in a fifteen song consisting live set, devided by a break of 20 minutes.
Remarkable moments sometimes come silently, they receive only small attention and are unnoticed by most. This can be a pity on the one hand, as more people should have witnessed and enjoyed them.

Since the invention of Psychedelic Rock, the three guys of The Vintage Caravan – Óskar, Alex and Stefán – are touring around, or at least you might think so. Though just at the beginning of their twentysomethings, the band is already facing an almost 10 years (!) history.
Size does matter. And in case of concerts, it’s the other way round as you usually interpret these words. So the smaller the better. I love those intimate club concerts without big stage and distance to the artists and therefore I was really keen on yesterday’s appearance of Icelandic rising electronic stars Vök who stopped by in Musik & […]
It is quite rare that Icelandic artists or bands show up close to my home in Upper Franconia which is admittedly rather off the beaten track when it comes to concerts. But in case the exception arises and it’s even a musical tidbit like songwirter Svavar Knútur from Reykjavík who is currently touring Europe with […]
After all that shitty weather at the beginning of the year in Berlin it’s finally worth it to crawl out of your shack: some mind blowing Icelandic artists will perform in Musik & Frieden club in March!
