A travelling California musician in Iceland to visit the home of Múm and Sigur Rós highly recommended this new release from 12 Tónar to the Grapevine. Some of the chords played on MIDI and other contraptions sound like the odd takes on sustained chords that Sigur Rós employ so well. Beyond that, we have to disqualify ourselves from reviewing this album, as we hated it so irrationally that we feel guilty. During the thirty-minute mocking of Happens Secretly, we had an extended comparison of this album with “Intelligent MIDI Sequencing with Hamster Control” an MIT experiment in which hamsters played music randomly. The hamsters won out big time.
Worth nothing. Costs four beers.
