This Saturday, KEXP presents Reykjavik Calling, the sister city showcase featuring some of the best bands and artists emerging from Seattle and Reykjavik. It’s our seventh year featuring this cross-cultural musical exploration, and one of the two acts traveling here from Iceland is long-time KEXP favorite Jófríður Ákadóttir, who has performed many times on our broadcast and recordings as a member of Samaris and Pascal Pinion. This time, she’s with her new solo project, JFDR. Last year, during Iceland Airwaves, we recorded JFDR at the former Sigur Rós studio, Sundlaugin, and captured two gorgeous new songs, in their raw nascency. Watch the videos below and then come to Reykjavik Calling on Saturday night, for a night of free music, and to see JFDR for yourself.
