I apologize for being a bit checked out this week (especially tonight). My concentration has been so consumed with Tuesday's results, that I've had trouble focusing on local music (or even Icelandic music!). That being said...
1) L.A.'s So Many Wizards' new video for "Lose Your Mind" is about a group of friends that appears to not yet be deadened inside, and is still enjoying life. Read a fascinating interview about the video here.
2) el menor (also known as Minor Me) has released a new video for a song called- "dirty rat (MITT ROMNEY IS A)":
4) Sigur Rós performed a new song, "Brennisteinn" (burning stone?) at this year's Iceland Airwaves (which I sadly missed :( ). Or is it "sadly I missed"?
5) Finally, a live performance from Iceland's Lay Low at Iceland Airwaves. Lay Low is one of Iceland's most likely breakthrough artists (I've seen her play twice in LA), so keep an eye out for her.
