A very interesting album made up by this Icelandic duo. It has very understated and minimalist instrumentation, with most of the tracks moving very slowly, often sounding like lullabies. The songs have elements of Radiohead and Sigur Ros. This is a very solid album with no detectable FCCs. Play any of it. (3, 5, 6, 9)

1. eerie intro, very calm and contemplative, throaty voice, very straightforward, repetitive lyrics
2. intro with organs, chime like vocals, turns into faster tempo with an echo-ey drum kit
3. very shadowed feel, sort of like Radiohead, drum kit used to keep a tense beat, slow
4. very experimental sound, strange bleeps coming in with intro, sort of a long song, eerie vocals still prevalent
5. a very soothing lullaby sound, quiet vocals, sweet lyrics, a very slow pace
6. interesting sound effects underlying the intro (i.e. camera shutters, crackling, laughter), melancholy lyrics to juxtapose the laughter, haunting, more of a pop feel than the others
7. strained vocals, very abrupt sound, experimental with almost an sigur ros sound to it
8. very understated drum kit effectively throughout intro, cool and subdued vocals, icelandic (?) title, more fast paced than others in this album
9. very spooky intro, leads into solemn piano, vocals seem almost disembodied over a very quiet closing track
