This week on BagCheck we ventured to the tiny island country of Iceland. While they may not be having the best run financially as of late, at least we can sit back and take comfort in the continued production of some great music. Enjoy the hour’s worth of tunes below and just appreciate that for as nice a day as we had today, they’re enjoying a heat wave of their own right now at a balmy 33 degrees. As per usual, band links below for more information on these acts, and if you have more interest in learning about Icelandic music, you can always keep up with the acts you heard on today’s show through the Iceland Music Export @ www.icelandmusic.is.
Until next week, stay warm!
