We’ve just published a new concert production to our YouTube channel. This time we’re featuring a full performance of one of the most successful new bands on gogoyoko from last year, Tilbury.
Here’s a new production of ours, a video of Moses Hightower at the gogoyoko wireless concert series. Moses Hightower are a fantastic band and really like no other in Iceland. Their blend of soul and r’n'b is entertaining and uplifting and their newest album was one of the most sold on gogoyoko last year.
Today we posted a video of the full performance of Sóley’s at our concert series, gogoyoko wireless. Originally, the show took place almost a year ago but since then Sóley’s musical career has skyrocketed. For instance, she currently holds the Icelandic record for most Youtube views with over ten million hits on a single video.
Over the holidays we presented a list compiled by our content team of the 30 Best Albums of 2012. Surprisingly to some, the winner was Anna Von Hausswolff’s captivating masterpiece Ceremony. Today we let the public speak their minds as we bring you the 30 Best Selling Albums of 2012. The debut album Exorcise by Icelandic indie-popsters Tilbury seemed to fit well in with people buying music this year, helping them outsell many more established bands. Samaris sell more copies if you combine the the sales of their two EP’s, but Stofnar Falla EP came in 2nd and Hljóma Þú came 3rd so it’s fair to say that the year was a good one for new talent.
The year 2012 has seen some really great music. Many new and exciting artists are surfacing with new releases, ideas and approaches, alongside releases by dearly established artists. Throughout the year our content team dug through hundreds of releases, listened carefully and made a list of 130 nomination-worthy candidates for The Best Album 2012. The list contains releases that are available on gogoyoko. The result is this juicy Top 30 list of highly recommended albums that received the highest scores from our team.
Tilbury are on roll these days and practically the only band people are talking about in Reykjavík at the moment. Their debut album Exorcise took no time at all hitting no 1 on the gogoyoko album charts and in a few days their set for Vinjerock Festival in Norway, where they’ll join gogoyoko’s traveling circus consisting of Agent Fresco, Snorri Helgason and Tilbury. The lot are heading to aforementioned Vinjerock as guests of the festival and will these three musical acts represent Icelandic music and the spirit of gogoyoko. But before all this, there’s the upcoming installment of gogoyoko wireless, our longstanding concert series where we feature the most notable music on gogoyoko in a live setting.
