Tune in to WCRX 88.1 FM or WCRXFM.com TONIGHT, beginning at 7 p.m., for a student preview of Iceland Airwaves Music Festival and Icelandic culture. Here is one of the preview stories. On Nov. 4, students enrolled in the Radio Department’s Covering International Festivals: Iceland course will travel to Iceland to cover the fest and more. Follow their journey here.
Mammút is a mainstay of the Icelandic indie rock scene. After winning Músiktilraunir, Iceland’s annual battle of the bands, in 2004, they went on to win numerous nominations and awards at the Icelandic Music Awards. You won’t want to miss them at this year’s Iceland Airwaves festival.
Listen as lead singer Kata Mogensen and bassist Ása Dyradóttir discuss heartache on stage, the difficulties of sticking together as a band, and their much anticipated move into the American music scene.
Mammút will be playing at Gamla Bíó on Wednesday November 5 at 11:20 p.m. and at the Reykjavík Art Museum on Saturday November 8 at 9:00 p.m.
