There should be a heart on that wall

This is the only Icelandic pop record I’ve ever heard that wasn’t by Björk, and unlike some of Björk’s stuff, this is set to, as Tom Lehrer might say, a possibly recognizable tune. (Still picture throughout.)

How I stumbled across this is yet another particle of the Stuff of Legend; I had eight or nine tabs open, and a reference to it was on the bottom of one of the pages. I wouldn’t have spotted it had I not been so lacking in dexterity, mouse-handling-wise.

    You may want to check out the group Nylon which may meet your pop sensibilities. I’m sure they do more than just covers, but here’s one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaaEjetbgIs

    Ah. A band I’ve heard of, but have never actually (I don’t think) heard.

    I did, of course, check out Nylon, sucker that I am for girl groups. Very nice, especially in their native language.

    And then I spun over to Sigur Rós and “Glósóli,” which I think I would have liked better — generally I’m a sucker for minimalism and discord — had I not been watching the somewhat-creepy video. Still, there is much to learn.
