"Burgeoning UK leftfield label Resonant debuts yet another artist -- and once again, Olvis is Icelandic: their fourth musician from those shores. Following the electronic forays of Borko and Sk/um. and more recently the much-lauded digital post-rock soundscapes of Stafrann Hakon, Olvis' music inhabits a more easily-defined territory, concentrating almost solely on warm, engaging guitar based instrumental pieces -- very accessible but without being generic or staid in any way. The first release of 25 year-old Orlygur Thor Orlygsson, this also features contributions from several leading lights on the vibrant Reykjavik music scene, but the album is essentially the work of one man: all written, recorded and played by Orlygur, with drums and synth added by his guests."
