Iceland comes to Boston, not for the first time, but for a milestone. We here at We Love Beantown are fans of Boston Calling- you may have read our interview with Brian Appel, co-founder of Crash Line Productions and producer of this weekend’s Boston Calling festival. Or yesterday’s review of Trouble Will Find Me, the new album from festival headliner The National.
We show a little love to Iceland’s Of Monsters and Men, who I saw a few years ago at Iceland Airwaves in 2011, another fantastic multiday urban music festival (and a mere five and a half hours from Government Center).
Enjoy the male-female vocals. The acoustic guitars and the atmospherics. The rousing “hey!”‘s. I saw this band in a pub in downtown Reykjavik and, for the first time in years, I said spontaneously, “I love it.”
