So check this out: we’ve got a small camera crew running around the good festival, and they have been busy interviewing folks, recording bands and generally getting all crazy with their cameras.
They are making short clips for us. We’re calling it Grapevine TV (yeah, we know. Sorry. It’s been a loooooong week) and you can see that shit RIGHT HERE!
As always, log on again later for more Grapevine TV and more FUN!
Love,
your friends at Grapevine HQ

Krummi is notorious for his outstanding work with Mínus, gothic industrial powerhouse Legend, and rock supergroup Esja. Döpur sees the man treading new ground… This is part of a video series called “Post-Set Breakdown” in which we team up with Music Reach to interview musicians after their gig. — See Also: Seven New Projects To Catch This Airwaves

The Best Of What We Saw At Iceland Airwaves 2014

The Best Of What We Saw At Iceland Airwaves 2014

by

Iceland Airwaves 2014 came and went, and oh what a blast it was (it was. It’s crazy. You should come next year). We very much like the Iceland Airwaves festival. Indeed, every year since 2005, we’ve operated a gargantuan team dedicated to reviewing EVERY SHOW by EVERY BAND on the official festival schedule. Through the years, this has proved a fun and often rough process that has resulted in some great writing, several nice quotes for a band’s press kit, a few broken hearts, several heated phone calls and more than one death threat (including that time in the late

A press pass fell in my lap unexpectedly and I felt compelled to go to the Airwaves festival. Although the pass fell too late for me to catch the only worthwhile show at the festival this year, the one that had Kontinuum following Momentum, who performed after Svartidauði, who, in turn came on after Ophidian I, I still got to see some truly memorable stuff this year. Some by design, and some through pure happenstance. What follows is my recollection: Wednesday to get my groove on On Wednesday afternoon I happened by Bar 11, where Future Figment were playing some

My word, what a daze. I felt a lasting, dull sensation in my ring finger this morning, almost a muscular latency, having woken up hungover on my mattress, which has been placed on the floor for my optimal comfort. Maybe it’s the beginnings of carpal tunnel syndrome, I don’t know. As you can imagine, I drank, and drank, and drank yesterday (that was Saturday) (meh, who cares) after some Airwaves fun. Not to the point of becoming a burden on my company, but a pleasant fuzz, a blur, which resided in me until about… I want to say… three in

Matt’s Fave LOOK! Portraits

by

This was my fourth year covering Airwaves, and although it’s crazy every year, this was probably my busiest yet. It was my first time as a member of the official Airwaves photo team. It was a pleasure working with a crack team of shooters and organizers. I also spent the last couple months organizing a group music photography exhibition called, “Look at the Light: Moments from Iceland Airwaves”. Check it out at KEX Hostel in the Gym & Tonic Room until November 25th! On top of all that, I shot the band portrait series here aptly named LOOK!. You may
