That soundtrack is one of my favorites, with original contributions from many of my favorite contemporary artists: Arcade Fire, The Secret Sisters, Civil Wars, The Decemberists, Punch Brothers, and so on, mostly produced by the great T-Bone Burnett.

Garðurinn minn, the new album from Árstíðir in collaboration with singer Magnús Þór Sigmundsson (who I’ve never heard of before). It’s not at all what I was expecting when I backed the crowdfunding campaign, but I am not at all disappointed. I really love the sound of it.
