Live Video: múm at Iceland Airwaves 2013

Each time we’ve gone back to Iceland over the past five years, we’ve been fortunate to discover and share with KEXP listeners quite a few bands who might not otherwise leave their shores. For every Sugarcubes and Sigur Rós, we found dozens of others, like Hjaltalín, Ásgeir, Of Monsters and Men (back in 2010!), Lay Low, Sin Fang, Hjálmar, Mammút and many, many others. But long before we’d even realized the prolific excellence of this arctic nation, we’d been playing Iceland exports múm, ever since their 2000 debut, Yesterday Was Dramatic – Today Is OK, in fact. The quirky orchestral pop group, whose membership seems about as mercurial as their sound, have managed several world tours over the years and have stopped by KEXP twice, but during Iceland Airwaves in 2013, we were lucky to catch them at home in the warmth of Kex Hostel in Reykjavik.
