Radio

By Tom Magic Feet

 
Christ, the radio stations in Iceland must be pretty adventurous if this is the kind of thing they play. At just 18 years old, Jonas Thor Gudmundsson is a mere slip of a lad, but he's already mastered the art of marrying electronic breakbeats to glacial, ice-cool (sorry) washes and chords. Trouble is, on the strength of Radio anyway, that's about all he's mastered and really it ain't enough to make for a full-length album. There's much here to be applauded and there's nothing you could actually point to as bad, but it is a case of stretching one trick too far. An album to be dipped into, then, if anything.
