Originally released in 2007, Music For Hairy Scary Monsters is a special gift for Iceland from a few Icelanders and other fellows from the Morr Music landscape. Originally this compilation was put together because of two Morr Music label nights, one in Reykjavik and the other in Akureyri. Both terminated in early June 2007 under a glimmering sun -- a northern light that never goes out during that season. A perfect mood for shiny music. Benni Hemm Hemm opens up with a song already released on a 7", "Aldrei." "Skavars," another one from Benni Hemm Hemm, comes in a "Rainy Version" this time. Both songs are intimate and expressive at the same time. The Go Find follows up with its elegant pop -- "Ice Bear," a cold Arctic track, close to the ear and deep in the snow. "Perfume V" is a high-definition cover version of a Pavement classic. Both tracks are previously-unreleased and so far are only available on this compilation. ISAN plays without words but is never speechless. Electronic landscapes are painted with some references to Iceland. "Re-spring My Sing Reverse" is a newly-arranged remix of a Múm track. Seabear bring viola, guitars and glockenspiel, illustrating the easiness and complexity of pop music, somewhere between Belle and Sebastian under a wide-open sky. Last but not least, is Tarwater. Bernd Jestram and Robert Lippok offer two new unreleased songs that would fit quite nicely into their Spider Smile record, with its dub to blues, electronic to analog sounds. A fine sampling of music played in the northern climes.
