You might remember “Cadence Weapon” from his videogame inspired debut album. His latest album is quite an evolution from his last, but it keeps those geeky references and nods. One bit in particular:
i was watching the wire when we first met
like disposable cells i was focused as hell
mega man 4 is still my favorite one

For such a small country, there’s certainly a lot of interesting music coming out of Iceland. It’s all likely the result of being stuck on an rocky, cold island in the North Atlantic. What else would you do then?
