>Svavar Knútur released new album "Amma" today

>New album “Amma” by Svavar Knútur is available @ Bandcamp for 9 USD.
Album contains covers of Icelandic folk & traditional songs alongside original material. His next album will contain originals.
The whole album was recorded live @ Aðalsteinn‘s (his publisher) home in the art street Skólavörðustígur of Reykjavik.
His grandmother Svava was there & listened to the good old songs that he had always wanted to sing for her. He dedicated this album to his grandmothers: Svava, Vilborg & Þórhildur. “Amma” means grandmother in Icelandic language (“afi” is grandfather). The sound engineer, Jón Skuggi, sat in the kitchen and listened to every cracking joint, hum and loud breath in the room.
