Double vinyl LP pressing. 2009 album from the Icelandic music maestros. The album is a much more laid back affair than Múm's most recent outings, more relaxed and quietly sad, often recalling sand running through fingers or ripples on a lake. Sometimes the music sounds naively utopic, but always manages to stay effortless and pure. As usual, the songs are brimming with unusual sounds, this time much of the songs revolve around a lightly prepared piano, hammered dulcimer, a string quartet, marimbas, guitars, ukuleles and in the background of a few of the songs one can hear Örvar's parent's parakeet singing with the piano.
