1. The most important album in my life is…

… „Probably Appetite for Destruction” by Guns and Roses. The sound, the drumming and basically everything is perfect and had a huge impact on me growing up.

2. The most interesting Icelandic album in this year in my opinion is…

… „Komdu til mín svarta systir” by Mammút is great. Also „Íkorni” and „Sérhver Vá” by Rúnar Þórisson, both really great and underrated albums that went unfairly under many radars last year. The album of 2014 will be the upcoming Sólstafir album, it is their best to date and absolutely stunning.

3. The album that I listen to the most currently is…

… apart from the upcoming Sólstafir album I would have to say „That Guitar Song” by Jamey Johnson, as I am a huge country music fan.

5. My favorite movie is…

… ” Með Allt á hreinu” by Stuðmenn, „the Icelandic Spinal Tap„. Impossible to be in a band without loving both these movies.

9. The album with the saddest music is…

… Anything by Sigur Rós, they are epic and beautiful or „Öræfi” by Hallur Ingólfsson for the same reason.

10. The album with the most joyful music is…

… The album that gets my party going without being “joyful” as such is „Guð hann myndi gráta” by Saktmóðigur, a great and true Icelandic punk band.

… Bright! And digital and decentralised and honest…
