I asked my friend Gunnar from Icelandic art punk band Grísalappalísa to bless us with a mix and he killed it!

"Hi it was really fun to put together this mixtape, Josh asked me to include some underground Icelandic artists - so I took my cue from there and compiled an exclusively Icelandic set. Most of these songs are recent except Magnetics (70’s) and Megas (1988) - the Graveslime and Sindri Eldon tracks are from the early 00’s. The majority of these artists are my friends and/or collaborators (it’s a small place etc) that have inspired me through the years. Some of these songs are old favourites of mine and some of them I discovered recently - my mood and also availability (I only had two of these on my computer before hand - the age of streaming etc) had some say in this. I could choose 10 different songs tomorrow, because it’s so fun. I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do.
Best, gunnar from grísalappalísa :))))))"
