Music from the heart of Iceland. A record that wants to boil over because of all its energy, lust and sometimes humor. A record, equally peculiar as idiosyncratic. Benni Hemm Hemm throws all possible ingredients in. It's a little big band with little big songs. In September of 2005, the record was released on the small label Smákökurnar, based in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik for the first time. It was re-released on Sound Of A Handshake, Morr Music's small, curious sister. An album that will grow with each time one listens to it, equally as Benni Hemm Hemm's band changes with each concert. In the center, there is Benni with his fervor and a mischievous smile, his acoustic guitar and his arrangements. Around him there are guitars, glockenspiel and the brass section. There are also raging waves and a deep, pure sea. You should listen to this record loudly and often.
