Icelandic Music in my Bag

Shopper's Paradise
Yesterday I went to downtown Brussels to dig for some Icelandic music bargains @ Arlequin shop, very close to Manneken Pis statue.
I found the debut album of the band Isidor "Betty takes a ride" (ISICD01, July 2004)
The band Isidor was founded in the autumn of 2001 by members of the bands Ubik & Kanó.
Band members:
Steingrímur Þórarinsson (bass)
Jón Þór
Olafsson (guitar)
Arnar Ingi Viðarsson (drums)
Orri Tómasson (guitar)
The band made a demo for friends around Christmas 2002.
Good indie music with metal riffs.
