Kristinn Kristinsson

"Amidst” by Kristinn Kristinsson is out now including a limited run of riso prints.

Recorded in 3 evening sessions on a single stereo-track, entirely improvised, this music documents the sort of melancholia felt after returning to one's hometown, in this case Reykjavík, following many years abroad. Utilizing heavily processed guitar he's expanding on the raw energy of sustained power chords filling up the spectrum with noise and harmonics.

The video created by Tillie Bedeau & Laura Schenk presents a distorted and feverish vision of a familiar place, as perhaps experienced in a distant memory or a dream.
