Hellvar's "Kjaftaedi" on Australian Fat Planet Radio Show

Two of my favourite countries united here:
Australia meets Icelandic music
Stuart Rogers, an Aussie based in New York City, was featured on Australian Stuart Buchanan’s nationally syndicated Fat Planet Radio Show on FBi FM. Stuart Rogers is the man behind the Iceland Airwaves Video Podcasts aka Iceairpodcast. He's making a lot of great videos of Icelandic artists, performing live in Iceland or abroad. Sometimes acoustic and/or even @ the homes of the artists! Original it is.
They made a 36-minute session in which the 2 Stuarts discussed new Icelandic music and played new tracks by 6 up and coming Icelandic artists:
1. Olöf Arnalds - "Klara" - Album "Vid og Vid "
2. Benni Hemm Hemm (feat. Jens Lekman) - "Friðþjófur Og Ingibjörg" - Album Ein Í Leyni
3. Mr. Silla & Mongoose - "Organ Deviltry" - Album "Foxbite "
4. Borko - "Ding Dong Kingdom" - Album "Celebrating Life"
5. Hellvar - "Kjaftaedi" - Album "Bat Out Of Hellvar"
6. FM Belfast - "Synthia" (Demo) - "How to make friends"
Stuart’s radio show is a companion to his international music blog, Fat Planet, which was recently featured in The Guardian as “Best Blog For World Music.”
