Visitors from Iceland, music to melt your heart

I don’t know whether to call it a crime or a steal that DC-er’s will get to enjoy the aural tinklings of Múm for only 12 bucks. In a world where the other two members of the Icelandic Beauty Trifecta (Bjork & Sigur Ros) can charge an arm, a leg and a kidney for a ticket, it just feels wrong to reap such wonderful music for such a piddling sum. These guys did come all the way from Iceland for crying out loud.

Múm perfectly balance the beauty of Sigur Ros and the odd fun of Bjork to make music from Iceland that sounds like its from outer space.
