Planning a travel to iceland


14 Jul 2007, 8:45

I'm almost done with my Iceland travel plan, quoting Stefan Sagmeister Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life.
So let's see what will happen.
Music is important, I'll hire a car and I started to thing on which albums I'll have to carry on.
I'll stay there 8 days, driving all around the island, so 20 albums is a good number. I've chosen the most listen in the last year and indeed, some Sigur Ros music.
Here's the list.

- Funeral and Neon Bible from Arcade Fire, I can't go there without those two.

- Legend this is one is like an anti depressive drug, in the remote case that I'll get depressed in the middle of Icelan I'll have this.

- Fevers and Mirrors and I'm Wide Awake It's Morning two great album, I love Bright Eyes

- O I'm not 100% sure to bring this one, it's a very good album, I like almost all the songs but...

- Destroyer's Rubies this is a funny, intelligent, great album

- Good News For People Who Love Bad News Modest Mouse are one of my last "discoveries" in the wonderful American indie music ground

- Finally We are No One well, some Icelandic music. I'm not a big fan of electronic music, but when it's made by Mùm...

- Harvest a classic, I can't live without.

- Pink Moon an old classic, a cult album.

- Death to the Pixies what to bring from the Pixies? Surfer Rosa or Doolitle? Let's bring the best of both albums.

- Cold Roses, Demolition, Easy Tiger, Gold, Heartbreaker more or less all my favourite Ryan Adams albums.

- Ágætis byrjun and Takk... from Sigur Rós

- Yankee Hotel Foxtrot from Wilco, just their best album ever!

    I went with an fm transmitter, then I was able to listen to all my ipod musci from the car stereo :-) I never listened to Sigur Ros, strange. Never to Bob Marley as well, reggae music was sounding very strange in Iceland, it's not the rice place for that!
