Something for the Weekend: Olafur Arnalds Living Room Songs

Sometimes I (Eric) come across projects or videos that … well, that gives me love for music, love for life, just love! I instantly get into a wonderful good mood. And this week that project is from Ólafur Arnalds, a fantastic Icelandic musician. I don’t know what they have in the water there but I really like the music coming from this island. I probably don’t have to mention I am a big fan of Sigur Ros as well! Anyway, Ólafur had this project going this week called ‘Living Room Songs’. This week he creates and releases a new song, one per day for one whole week. The songs are being recorded and filmed live in the living room of his Reykjavík apartment and released instantly for FREE as streamed videos and MP3 downloads.

The video below is from Tuesday and somewhat my personal favorite. The project ends this sunday. Please do yourself a favorit and check his beautiful songs out at Ólafur Arnald’s website. Did I mention I love this?
