Boomkat product review for:

prince valium - Andlaus

One half of Icelandic electronica duo Sk/um, Thorsteinn Olafsson has given his sound an epic makeover for this his solo debut on Resonant. The skittering micro beats and gentle, filtered melodies of old are still very much present, but on Andlaus they're less central. Here the focus is the kind of echoic electric guitar-based post-rock that you'd expect from Morr Music's Manual or Olafsson's Resonant labelmate, Stafraenn Hakon. 'Crying Hearts' comes closest to a concise pop song, but it's most notable for inviting national stereotyping: with - and it pains me to make such lazy comparisons (though apparently not enough to stop myself) - majestic bowed guitar lifted straight off the first Sigur Ros album, and a vocal that (here I go again...) inevitably sounds a bit like Björk. As the album progresses, Olafsson delves deeper into his shoegazing electronica repertoire to create an atmospheric body of work which evocatively, if utterly predictably, reflects the vast, icy topography of his homeland. Lovely.
