Discordant and diverse, in a cool way
Irony is definitely my cup of tea. If it’s discordant, I’ll usually like it. If it’s homogeneous, I generally won’t. Therefore Húðlitað Klám, being a discordant and diverse album, worked out pretty well for me. It is an impressively varied album, so much that I’m not even going to try and slap a label on it. LastFM describes them as a ‘five piece rock/comedy outfit’, but even if you don’ t understand the lyrics or the jokes, it’s easy to appreciate the light-hearted approach they bring to a heavy sound. It gets intense at times, but the whole album is really worth a listen whether or not intensity is your thing. And if you don’t like one song on it, it doesn’t mean you won’t like some of the others. So, if you are open of mind and pure of heart, listen and enjoy.
