"First release outside of his homeland for Iceland's Stafrann Hakon, centered around the majestic soundscapes of Olafur Josephsson, a young man with incredible talent and a big future. Skvettir Edik A Ref doesn't represent his recording debut, but it certainly announces his arrival on the international scene in a grand style. This is the first of two Stafrann albums to be released in 2003 on Resonant (I Astaandi RJ Punnar follows) and collectively they form the finest body of work in the post-rock genre in years. That said, to pigeonhole Stafrann's work as post-rock doesn't even tell half the story. Bringing to mind Labradford. Tarentel or an instrumental Sigur Ros, his music is epic, incredibly emotive and atmospheric -- and though the component parts tread a fairly familiar path, the end product is anything but formulaic."
