Five Albums That Shaped Bergrún Anna Hallsteinsdóttir´s Decade

Published January 20, 2011

Sigur Rós – Takk (2007) Takk received critical acclaim here, there and everywhere, went gold and made everyone sit up and take notice… again.
 

FM Belfast – How To Make Friends (2008) An album that has been known to cause people to actually run down the street in their underwear. If this isn’t music with a positive influence then İ don’t know what is.
 

Emiliana Torrini – Fisherman’s Woman (2005) Fisherman’s Woman made folk-lovers all over sit up and take notice and is just a really sweet album in general.
 

Agent Fresco – Lightbulb Universe (2008) Everyone knew the lyrics before the album was even released. It goes without saying that this was one of the albums of the new millenium.

 
Mugison – Mugimama: Is This Monkey Music? (2004) The multi-talented  Mugisson has influence near and far and his 2004 album permanently placed him on the music map.

1. Orphic Oxtra – Orphic Oxtra
They brought the sound of the Balkans to Iceland and injected the music scene with a much-needed dose of difference.
