Kurr, Amiina

Kurr, Amiina I finally got my hands on the new Amiina record Kurr via eMusic, and I have to say I really like it. There are a few holdout tracks from previous EP's Seoul and AnimaminA, but on the whole the songs on this full-length record are more refined, a bit more pop-ish, some even with nice melodic hooks and bridges.

I hate to say it, but some of the tracks sound like they're destined for Volkswagen commercials. If you're into strange, but not to strange, Icelandic music like me, this is definitely a record to get. And if you're a bit put off by some of the weirdness of their previous work, this Amiina release is certainly more accessible.
