Fricke's Picks: The Icelandic Beck


Sin Fang Bous is one guy from Iceland, Sindri Már Sigfússon, who makes the seductive small-combo pop on Clangour (Morr Music). The close-up vocals, austere overdubs and beach-angel harmonies suggest Beck's Sea Change with laptops and a light coat of frost. Sigfússon tours here in October and November, so you can see how he does it live.
