Teitur Magnússon [IS]
Teitur Magnússon is a long time veteran of the Icelandic music scene, first with his highly popular reggae band Ojba Rasta and later as a solo artist. His second solo album was amongst the most highly anticipated releases in Iceland this year. The second album introduces a new approach in soundscape from the first one, although the original Icelandic lyrics are still there, golden oldies quality songwriting and puzzles of different genres and styles shaken together into a blend of something quite extraordinary. It’s hard to describe, one has to experience for one self, psychedelia? Folk? Indie-pop? Hard to tell.. But whatever it is, Teitur is nothing short of magical. The Solstice performance will feature a mix of older and newer material, some of which has never been heard before, so take it easy and enjoy the ride.
