Band of the Week: Hjaltalín

Hjaltalin are Iceland's newest about-to-be export, a band that has already been nominated for five Icelandic Music Awards, going on to win "Best Songwriter" and "Brightest Hope." Pretty awesome for a young band, eh? They are made up of eight members, playing the traditional guitar, bass and drums as well as piano, accordion, clarinet, cello, bassoon and violin the compliment the vocals. Their debut album, Sleepdrunk Seasons, came out last December in their native country and just hit the rest of Europe this week.
