Björk Guðmundsdóttir (21 November 1965 – ?), known as Björk, is an Icelandic singer-songwriter. She began her music career in The Sugarcubes and released her first solo album in June 1993, receiving great international acclaim. Since then, her eclectic musical style has achieved popular acknowledgement and popularity within many musical genres, such as rock, jazz, electronic dance music, classical and folk. Her voice has been acclaimed for its distinctive qualities. Björk is a “robusto” soprano, which means she has a voice which is particularly marked by a certain fullness of sound with a light timbre, but without losing the projection or volume of it. She is a major force in attracting global attention to the Icelandic music scene.

She has also attracted attention through films (her appearance in Dancer In The Dark won her “Best Actress Award” at 2000’s Cannes Film Festival), music videos (“Cocoon” appeared on a late night special on MTV2 entitled “Most Controversial Music Videos”), and fashion (her swan dress was voted ninth most iconic red-carpet dress of all time in the Daily Telegraph).

Vocalist Elise Percy toys with languid syllables, her voice drifting over finger-plucked guitars, rustling percussion, and liquid cello. Bird chirping lures you into this thoughtful album. Delicately crafted...Read...

Fever Ray – Self-Titled Album Review

Fever Ray is the creation of Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of the lauded Swedish act, The Knife, and she makes music to get spiritual to. Combine the best brooding qualities of downtempo and ambient music (picture Hooverphonic meets Enya), with the mystery of ethnic music from countries like India or Iran, and you have...Read...
