So Sweet! Edition of 400, with a full-colour sleeve and insert. It’s taken 14 years for these extravagant Icelandic artist troubadours to follow up their last (untitled) album. (At least they managed to give this one a name ; imagine what else they’d be capable of if we’ d waited another five years. ) Beach Jolanda transposes their classic calipso - beach - bar - laptop - organ g ibberish to the unmanned terrain of public lavatories in the dead of night. But i t wouldn’t be a party without guests: BJ Nilsen, Oren Ambarchi, Porsteinn Eyfjörd, Gerard Herman and Kristin Anna all turn up here, wielding bottles and other unlikely instruments.
