3.5 greatchambered99 | August 23rd 14

this is rather beautiful, though I just don't know if I can see myself listening to this on the reg. A deceptively huge, not always engaging, breezy record.

Look at who made the main review for this, and you'll know what to expect: gentle, soft, beautifully arranged indie folk that got some folktronica lying underneath to add some dynamism as well as post-rock tendencies to add more ethereal character. The bloated length and the overall lack of diversity make 0 an album I respect but won't ever love.

Everything that I would wish to say about this is basically summed up in sowing's review. However, anyone looking for a unique indie rock experience should immediately check this out.

Low Roar builds on what is becoming an increasingly burgeoning collective of gorgeous Icelandic soul music. Moving to Reykjavik was a smart idea.

3.5 greatBedex | November 8th 20

Quite underwhelming if you ask me. Sure this is pretty folktronica (far more electronic than I remember the debut was although it's been a while), and I have nothing against wholly soft albums, but here there are too few memorable moments, and more importantly to few slow build up intros that make the album feel like an endless ebb and flow between soft and less soft that never explodes but makes you want it to explode. There are some highlights though and individually I suppose most of the tracks would work. The album intro is really cool reminding of sigur ros x radiohead, and the track itself is great. 2 is symptomatic of the problem as its soft intro should imo have been skipped entirely as it intensifies nicely in its second half which would have been a better follow up to 1. 6 has kind of a memorable hook and is quite nice. 7 is another highlight and is one of the few tracks that has a bit of a punch from the get go. 9 is almost a jam and perhaps the top highlight here with its post-rock leanings while keeping the folktronica sound. Because it was more intense, it makes the calmer 10 work unlike the prior yawney tracks. 12 has a nice intro texture, then goes back to yawncore, but the instrumental last third is quite cool and would have been a nice way to end the album, as 13 recycles themes from 6 and feels wholly unnecessary. Nice, but too little spread over too long. 3.4

One of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Excellent mixing and mastering.
