Mammút have refined a sound which is saturated with heavy energy and sense of melody, something that comes to the fore in their live show, which is known for its intensity. While performing they radiate with confidence and they seem to bring you an inner freedom. Their fourth album will be released summer 2017 on Bella Union. Mammút gained national attention with their third and latest album "Komdu til mín svarta systir" (2013), which won them the Icelandic Music Awards for best album and was ranked #1 in all major newspapers in Iceland, as well as their song "Salt" being awarded as best song of the year. Mammút has signed a contract with Bella Union and released River’s End, an EP in June 2015. Mammút will release a new LP Summer 2017.
Pavo Pavo are an experimental pop band from Brooklyn, NY. Their debut record, Young Narrator in the Breakers, will be released on Bella Union in November 2016. The band started writing together while studying music at Yale, and since then its five members have worked closely with indie and classical heavyweights such as Here We Go Magic, Roomful of Teeth, Dave Longstreth, and San Fermin. Stereogum describes their music as “weightless pop that sounds like it was beamed down from a utopian future” Young Narrator in the Breakers walks through its songs with symphonic elegance – guitar stabs, washed out harmonies, and rumbling synthesizers come and go like guests at a party. The record describes the magic and panic of adult life; a breaker is a wave whose potential energy is being transformed into turbulent kinetic energy. Co-produced by Danny Molad (Lucius) and Sam Cohen (Yellowbirds), it is a romantic record in the tradition of Elephant 6, and a cohesive record in the tradition of Grizzly Bear. It’s our pleasure to introduce: Pavo Pavo.
