This issue’s picker is none other than the ever-personable Anton Kaldal Ágústsson, who is best known as the man behind electronic outfit Tonik Ensemble (whose latest album ‘Snapshots’ got stellar reviews from the Grapevine and elsewhere). When he’s not tweaking and perfecting some tune, Anton spends his waking hours obsessed about design—he in fact works as a parttime lecturer and graphic designer. When asked what interests him about music or art events, he simply said ambition and genuineness. If you missed his show earlier this month at Húrra or Extreme Chill Festival, fret not, for he’ll be playing at Iceland Airwaves this November. You can find the events our picker of the issue found to be interesting spread out over the following pages, marked with this icon. Photo by Alexander Matukhno

19 August

I Remember The Rabbits, Nanna Of Monsters And Men Harpa Austurbakki 2 (C5) | August 19 at 21:00, 20 at 22:00 | 4-6,000 ISK “George, why ain’t we goin’ down to Harpa?” Lennie looked down at the ground in despair. “So you forgot that awready, did you?” said George. “We ain’t got no money, Lennie.” The two walked down Highway 1 with thumbs held up high, hoping to be picked up by any fool headed toward Smokey Bay. “Aw dang George, I wanted to see them fellas… those Icelandic kids who strum that indie-folk-pop worldwide.” “Well ok Lennie, we can go, but you ain’t gon’ do no bad things like you done back in Akureyri?” Lennie shook his head. “Aw Lennie, if I ain’t have you I’d get on so well. I’d get a girl, we’d get a lil house in Garðabær… Listen to Of Monsters And Men awday…” HJC Photo by Dan Busta
