Iceland (1997 to present) Múm (pronounced as [muːm], “moom”)** is an experimental Icelandic pop group whose music is characterized by soft vocals, eccentric beats and colorful effects, and a variety of traditional and unconventional instruments. Originally a duo, the band has expanded and contracted like a beating heart in the 12 years of being and has counted 15 - 20 people along the way. The band was formed in 1997 by original members Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, their first release was a split 10” with the girl-band Spúnk and saw light in the summer of ‘98. They were joined a year later by twin sisters Gyða and Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir and released two albums as quartet.

Following a number of collaborative projects, the group’s celebrated debut album ‘Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today Is OK’ (reissued by Morr Music in October 2005) gained a wealth of glowing press and widespread praise. A remix project, ‘Please Smile My Noise Bleed’, also released on the Morr Music label in November 2001. In 2002, after the release of Finally we are no one and the extensive first world tour, Gyða left the band to return to her studies in Reykjavík. Shortly after, the third sister Ásthildur Valtýsdóttir joined for singing duties temporarily and Serena Tideman replaced Gyda on cello, for a single European tour. The band’s third album, ‘Summer Make Good’, a darker and foggier, nautically themed work was released in May 2004, flanked by two singles, ‘Nightly Cares’ and ‘Dusk Log’.

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
