Rich Grula A great performance and terrific piece of viral marketing. I'll probably buy their whole collection once I digest this. Sounds like the best of Arvo Part and Sigur Ros at church. Favorite track: Heyr, himna smiður (live at Wuppertal train station).

Shawna My favorite artists will always be those who can deliver a stellar live performance, and boy do these guys deliver. I saw them in Kansas City last July and was blown away.

This is a recording that we made on tour in Germany in september 2013. The show took place in the magnificent Dreikönigskirche in Dresden.

Five days earlier we shot a spontaneous video in a train station in Wuppertal, where we performed the old Icelandic hymn "Heyr himna smiður." youtu.be/e4dT8FJ2GE0

Track Name: Heyr, himna smiður (live at Wuppertal train station)
Heyr, himna smiður,
hvers skáldið biður.
Komi mjúk til mín
miskunnin þín.
Því heit eg á þig,
þú hefur skaptan mig.
Eg er þrællinn þinn,
þú ert drottinn minn.

Guð, heit eg á þig,
að þú græðir mig.
Minnst þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín.
Ryð þú, röðla gramur,
ríklyndur og framur,
hölds hverri sorg
úr hjartaborg.

Gæt þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín,
helzt hverja stund
á hölda grund.
Send þú, meyjar mögur,
málsefnin fögur,
öll er hjálp af þér,
í hjarta mér.
