A sort of children’s story with songs, Diskóeyjan tells the tale of two kids, Daníel and Rut, who are sent to Diskóeyjan (“disco island”) to learn how to be cool. The music is funky, disco naturally plays a part, and the story is original to say the least. The album calls on a whole range of well-known Reykjavík musicians who lend their talent to the story/album, but the main force behind it is Baggalútur member Bragi Valdimar Skúlason, who uses his skills as both a comedian and musician to good effect here. Overall the album is a good one for the kids that, as an added bonus, parents will probably find quite amusing, too.
