This multi-instrumentalist Icelandic quartet is perhaps best known for their work with
Sigur Rós, but their album Kurr was one of the highlights of last year. This track features the guest vocals of legendary country star Lee Hazlewood in his last recording.

Staying with Icelandic music, Björk is, without doubt, one of the greatest songwriters and innovators in music. She takes huge risks such as an album using only vocals (Medúlla) which turns out to be brilliant but the very idea scared a lot of people. The following is the third single from the also brilliant but more accessible new album Volta, which has a nice message. I'm working on my flag design now.
