Iceland Airwaves '07: Múm

We're down to two weeks until the Iceland Airwaves Festival has its annual invasion of Reykjavik, and we keep on reminding you every Monday of another reason (in the form of a band who's playing the festival, that is,) on why you should be going. Or at least wanting to go.

This week, we look at Múm, an experimental outfit from Iceland. Pronounced 'moon,' the band is actually rather well known already here in the US, already in existence for a decade and fresh off the release of their newest album,
Go Go Smear The Poison Ivy. Using catchy electronics this side of Radiohead and romanticized boy/girl vocals, Múm is definitely one of the definitive highlights to this year's festival. Download their track "Dancing Behind My Eyelids," and if you like what you hear, you don't have to travel to Iceland to see them: they'll be touring America beginning later this month.

And if that isn't enough for you Americans, residents of Baltimore and Washington DC are encouraged to check out A Taste of Iceland, sponsored by the folks of Iceland Naturally. There will be bands, films, and all sorts of things going on at the conveniently dubbed Iceland Pavilion at the Baltimore Fun Fest at Fells Point near the Inner Harbor. Don't miss it.
