Festival Goes Down in Reykjavík, Iceland November 2-6

Iceland Airwaves goes down exactly one month from today. To help pump us up for our trip to Reykjavík (as if seeing PJ Harvey, Warpaint, and Julia Holter wasn’t exciting enough) we’ve recruited some of our favorite artists playing the fest to make us a celebratory mixtape.

The first one in our special series comes from Iceland’s own Pétur Ben. He calls this blend of songs paintexblueprint and says the songs from Aphex Twin, Sun Kil Moon, Caribou and more have influenced his upcoming album blue. Listen below. Making the journey with us? High five. Grab any festival info you might need here.
