PRLog - June 19, 2014 - For many it's difficult to think of Iceland without thinking of music. Shopicelandic offers good selection of Icelandic artists from Bjork and Sigur Ros, Of Monsters and Men to Asgeir Trausti, as well as many other pop, folk or classical artists.
Asgeir Trausti 2CD album from Shopicelandic.com
Iceland is a small nation in the North Atlantic ocean with population of about 320.000. Therefore it has surprised people how many music bands and artists come from Iceland.
Shopicelandic likes to mention few of the best sellers in our online store.
1. Asgeir Trausti
Ásgeir has publised two albums, his debut album, "Dyrd i daudathogn" was biggest selling album in Iceland's history, with three no1 hit singles. That album was followed with "In the Silence", an English-Language version of the debut album. Now also available togeather in duo pack.
2. Of Monsters and Men
By the summer of 2011 “Little Talks” hit No. 1 in the band’s native country, and "people around the world seemed to be listening to us", marvels Raggi. The band was asked to perform again at Iceland Airwaves 2011, where KEXP then anointed the group as "easily the most buzzed about band". Though their reach is growing broader, the group's appeal has remained distinct: Their music is as fantastical as it is pretty. http://shopicelandic.com/
Mammút is an Icelandic band, formed in December 2003. The band then consisted of 2 boys and 3 girls, aged 14-16 back then. A few months after the formation Mammút won the Icelandic Battle of the Bands, having only written 3 songs in total. In the beginning of April 2006 Mammút released it’s first LP album with Bad Taste record label. The album got good reviews and it’s first single, Thorkell, hit #1 in Iceland. New hits and worth listening to!

5. GUS GUS
The Icelandic group have been around for a while now, first debuting on 4AD before becoming steadily more electronic. Now, following 2011's Arabian Horse, Birgir Thorarinsson, Daníel Ágúst, Högni Egilsson and Stephan Stephensen are returning with Mexico, which a press release describes as being infused "with the same luster as their earlier work, but... with the snappiness and intricate production values needed for contemporary debauchery."
