If Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros teamed with Florence Welch and some of the boys from Mumford and Sons the outcome would probably sound a lot like My Head Is An Animal (amazon) (itunes). Of Monsters and Men combine a lot of currently en vogue folk and indie musical stylings on their debut full length album and every single track is worth listening to. They’re an eclectic group that somehow sounds very familiar (see above referenced bands + Arcade Fire and even 90’s Ska Revival). I would go so far as to argue they’re the second best outfit coming out of Iceland. Take a listen to a few tracks below and you’ll agree the entire album is worth a purchase.
One of the most thoroughly entertaining debut albums I have heard in a long time.
