This is the second full-length release from Iceland's Skakkamanage. All Over The Face follows up 2007's highly-praised Lab Of Love, and contains everything from bittersweet ballads, to noisy, guitar-driven rock and quirky pop songs. And the overall sound is so thick and juicy, that you could easily feast on it. The outcome is a personal, revealing and ridiculously fun album that is destined to have a huge impact. Skakkamanage are husband and wife duo Svavar Pétur Eysteinsson (guitar and vocals), and Berglind Häsler (piano, synthesizers and vocals), plus Þormóður Dagsson (drums) and Örn Ingi Ágústsson (bass). During the recordings, Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason of múm came to visit and played harmonica and did some backing vocals. The multi-talented Orri Jónsson produced the album and it was mostly recorded live on multi-track tape in the Slowblow studio. At times sounding like an Icelandic Yo La Tengo, Skakkamanage craft tilted, anti-love pop songs with enthusiasm and originality.
