Kví, kví – a new tour EP

October 9, 2009

In the weeks before leaving Iceland this August, I recorded a 5 song EP that I chose to call Kví, kví. After a very inspired “creative night” with friends, brainstorming on different artwork ideas, I decided that I had to go to the studio and record some new material to bring with me on the road.

It’s nice to record for this shorter format, and also not under the pressure of a bigger release. I’m happy with the outcome.
The Tracklist is as follows:

Bréfið
Canadian Skies
Móðir mín í kví, kví
Kvika Silfur
I am God

The covers, a collaboration with the US artist Milan Delvecchio, are all handmade and fancy, numbered and a limited edition of 1000. At first I only thought of this as something to sell at shows, but now, after getting a couple of emails about it, I’m wondering if people would be interested in ordering the album on the net. Please comment on this if you have an opinion. Best from Copenhagen. *h

Germany/Austria/Swiss Album Release

October 5, 2009

On October 9th, my latest album “For the Rest of my Childhood” will be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It’s really the perfect timing as I will be touring G/A/S extensively in October and November.
The first single from the album is “Digging up a Tree”.

I’m very excited as the first reviews are coming out; just got a message this morning congratulating on the Rolling Stone review. I can’t wait to get a hold of an issue.

Stay tuned for more info on this release and the promo we’re doing around it. Might be some nice video performances and interviews for you to check out. Best. *h

I want to tell you almost everything.

October 4, 2009

Hi to you all.

I’ve been doing some thinking lately. About my internet appearance; which admittedly has been in the “Kindergarten” mode for a long time. I was talking to a good friend from the music industry the other day and telling her about my problems with keeping up a decent homepage. She basically told me I didn’t really need the “classic website”, but I should take a look into that “WordPress” thing. I think she’s right. I mean, let’s face it, if people want to look at some “teenage heartthrob” photography of me, they don’t need me to provide them with that. People can just find them on flickr or somewhere else.

So that’s what I’m doing here and now. I’ve started this blog and I will try and update it with relevant news about me and my music; or just anything I can come up with. You, my fans/readers/friends/foes/whatever should be able to add some content as well; don’t quite know yet how that’s going to work, but I guess basic commenting etc. is pretty standard.

You can follow me on Twitter , Facebook, and MySpace.

Hopefully I can find a way to build this blog-site into something interesting and useful, with some nice features.

My best greetings from Hollywood, playing the Roxy on Sunset Blvd. tonight.

Helgi
