about

Release Info :

The first release outside of his homeland for Iceland's STAFRÆNN HÄKON, centred around the majestic soundscapes of Olafur Josephsson, a young man with incredible talent and a big future. "Skvettir Edik A Ref" doesn't represent his recording debut, but it certainly announces his arrival on the international scene in a grand style; this is the first of two STAFRÆNN HÄKON albums to be re-released on Resonant after initially being available in Iceland only via Olafur’s own label Vogor Recordings ("I Astaandi RJ Punnar" follows early next year), and collectively they form the finest body of work in the post-rock genre in years. Resonant have also committed to releasing the first new studio album for two years from the band early in 2004. That said, to pigeonhole STAFRÆNN’s work as post-rock doesn't even tell half the story. Bringing to mind Labradford, Tarentel or an instrumental Sigur Ros, his music is epic, incredibly emotive and atmospheric - and though the component parts tread a fairly familiar path, the end product is anything but formulaic.
