Listen: Úlfur – Black Shore

Some gorgeous soundscaping from Reykjavik, Iceland’s Úlfur, who describes his upcoming debut album White Mountain as a collage of field-recordings, featuring guest vocals from Alexandra of Mountain Man and the blessings of Jónsi. In case you thought everyone in Icelands makes experimental ambient and believes in elves, Úlfur’s own words probably won’t make you change your mind, as “some tracks were composed of beats made from my cousin throwing rocks into a pond out in the sticks in Iceland, converging with some birds I met in Chigaco”. This is why we love Icelanders.
