La Blogothèque In Iceland! (A Take Away Show with Mógil)

For six years, La Blogothèque, a French group, has been filming “beautiful, rare and intimate sessions with your favorite artists, and the ones you are soon to fall in love with.” (My all time favorite is this one with Beirut.) Their sessions happen on the streets, on rooftops, in bathrooms, out in nature, and everywhere in between.

Today, they released a gorgeous session with the Icelandic band Mógil. Mógil makes music that “floats in a gauzy haze with the vocals delivered in a rich, soprano that has a folk-­based earthiness, contrasting with the very contemporary accompaniment” (-The New York City Jazz Record).  La Blogothèque captures their haunting music in several locations in the southwest of Iceland, including Gljúfrasteinn, the former home and now museum of Halldór Laxness, who is one of Iceland’s most renowned authors.
