Song of the 186. Week: "Ein stök ást" by Lifun

186. Song of the Weeks is Lifun‘s song “Ein stök ást” (A single love). Airwaves festival is over by now, unless for the after-after-party people… So I have chosen an easy tune for you.

This song is featured on their Debut Album “Fögur fyrirheit“. Lyrics of “Ein stök ást” were written by Baldur Þórir Guðmundsson

Music Alliance Pact (MAP) # 25 (October 2010)

It’s time for the 25th I love Icelandic music contribution to an international initiative, the Music Alliance Pact, aka MAP. I take part in this Blog Alliance since the start in October 2008. On a monthly basis music bloggers from around the globe select a track from their country which is then posted collectively and simultaneously on those blogs – giving each nation’s track international exposure.
A trip around the world in 36 songs with a take off in Iceland:
This month I contributed “Lava“, a song Captain Fufanu for Iceland.
