Say hi to Stefan Krijnen at Groovmill who's going to be working with us in the Benelux countries (The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium). Groovmill is a music agency based in Amsterdam active in the fields of bookings, artist management and organizing events. For the types of artists and events Groovmill is involved with, crossing musical boundaries has become a standard rather than an exception so we are no exception there...we guess:)
Our album cover for Órar just got chosen as the album cover of the year at the Iceland Music Awards. The award ceremony itself will take place next Wednesday but this award was handed out on TV tonight. We congratulate Bobby Breiðholt and Jonina de la Rosa, our designers...and ourselves of course. Other awards we are nominated for are: Best Album & Text Writer of the year (Steini). We can also be voted for as the most popular artist/band on the news website mbl.is
"Icelandic reggae? We know what you’re thinking. What would a bunch of Norsemen know about tropical island music? A lot, it seems."
Back in October during Iceland Airwaves we invited the guys from radio KEXP to a jerk chicken party at our studio in Hljóðriti in Hafnarfjörður Iceland and performed a few songs for them and our friends. They recorded us live and now you can read all about their experience and check out the videos of the performance on the KEXP blog. If you'd like to indulge yourself in a hjálmar mini-concert you can watch the full-performance.
