Barujarn – “Barujarn” – [Melur Records]

Cousin Mary   9/18/2013   A Library, CD

Barujarn (pronounce approximately as BAR_OO_YARN) claims to be Iceland’s only surf band; their name comes from the wavy corrugated metal commonly seen in Icelandic roofs. There are vocals in Icelandic on all tracks, theremin is heard occasionally. Powerful instrumentals and an original approach to surf, the tracks have a bit of darkness and lots of energy.

PGM: Track 9 ends with 5 minutes of ocean wave sounds, presumably on an Icelandic beach.
