Between the endless list of acts and the triple-digit windspeeds, you could have stood on any corner in Reykjavik last night and heard everything from artrock to zither-pop

CHEEK MOUNTAIN THIEF AT KEX

ICELAND AIRWAVES CLOSES FOR ANOTHER YEAR On the streets of Reykjavik this morning, the sound of Iceland Airwaves had been replaced by a chorus of suitcases being wheeled along the footpaths, as more foreign visitors than is usual for a typical Monday morning headed home.

After that I’ll be heading to Kaffibarinn where one of my favourite local […]

O’Connor’s debut album came out in 1987, three years before the singer/songwriter shot to world fame with her 1990 hit ‘Nothing Compares […]
