Of Monsters and Men - King and Lionheart

Of Monsters and Men has been one of my most anticipated releases of 2011 since first falling madly and deeply in love with their song "For Finner" on a rainy winter's night many months ago. The Icelandic band released their debut album My Head is an Animal a few weeks before the Iceland Airwaves music festival where they received nothing but rave reviews. The album is not yet available in the U.S. but it'll be worth the wait. Their sound is consistently brave, warm, and full. The six piece band makes the biggest impressions during the songs in which they go from quiet and simplistic guitars and singing before erupting into a joyous burst of instruments and handclaps. I don't know if there is anything more affective or likable than that.  I give this album my highest recommendation.


  1. Cant wait for it to make it to the US

  2. The day this album is available in the US will be like a second Christmas to me.
