Hjaltalín recently topped the Icelandic X-id chart with "Goodbye July / Margt að Ugga", a very unique track sung in two very different styles, both in English and in Icelandic. The English part sounds like a modern indie track, very catchy and then the Icelandic part sounds like a traditional old lullaby.
"Goodbye July / Margt að Ugga" is available for download at Hjaltalín's MySpace profile, have a listen and leave your comments.
The band got pretty nice reviews at Iceland Airwaves 2006 and are set to release an album sometime late this summer. They just performed a track from the new album live on a local tv show "Kastljós" tonight so I'm including a link to that as well.
