#MusicMonday: Gus Gus – Over

Gus Gus from the young island Iceland; islandish/icelandish. Taken from their 2011 album ‘Arabian Horse’ (released via KOMPAKT). For a brief history on music from Iceland – read: foundations laid via [celtic slave song + Icelanders travel and contact with foreign musicianship + worship “singing of the catholic mass”] + [first choir brings celebration of musicianship < 3 MAJOR moments (pianist/composer makes national anthem, national song brings attention to musical heritage, establishment of College of Music & National Radio)] = up to 1930 in Iceland Music History. Since then – Bjork & Sigur Ros? 😉
