Description

Iceland's Mum send seasonal greetings with this 7", containing two interpretations of conventional Icelandic Christmas songs: "Nu er Gunna a nyju skonum" ("Now Gunna is wearing her new shoes") and "Babbi segir" ("Daddy Says"), both of which are traditionally sung around the tree at Christmas dances. They are arranged for guitar, autoharp, kazoos and voices and are sung in (charming) terrible-beautiful style. Slightly festive stuff yet melancholic, floating somewhere between pure naivete and lucid kitsch. With the addition of artwork by lead singer Orvar THoreyjarson Smarason and a coupon for a free download (with a a digital bonus track), this is the best Icelandic Christmas 7" put out all year.
