Iceland Airwaves '07: Jakobinarina

So, over the past few weeks, our Mondays have been filled with talks of bands that are playing the Iceland Airwaves Festival. Luck have it, the week is finally here. To stay up to date throughout the duration of the festival, make sure you hit up their official site for more details.

The last band we'll be covering is Iceland's answer to garage rock, Jakobinarina. Fusing their love of punk from the Clash and the Sex Pistols with a hint of the 60s garage rock movement, this sextet let their influences be shown on their recently released The First Crusade. This debut album's dozen songs come across as an album that was recorded by a band who've been playing in the major leagues for quite some time, maybe it is this generation's Nevermind The Bollocks, the possibilities are endless. You can find out for yourself by checking out the song "His Lyrics Are Disastrous" downloading it over in the sidebar.
