    Bless Bless

    If you're looking for the perfect soundtrack to accompany your carefree tumbles down a grassy knoll this summer, I've got just the thing. The Icelandic music group Múm have a DJ set available online from a BBC Radio 1 session recorded in April 2002. Almost an hour long, the set is in mp3 format and includes great tracks by Múm, Augustus Pablo, Manual, and Sigridur Nielsdottir otherwise known as the "charming casio lady."

    In 2001, soon after Múm's release of their first album Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK, I dropped them an email to say hello. They responded cordially:

    Hallo Sean.

    Thanks for writing us, we are happy you like our musik. Are you from the United Stadt? Sorry we did not write sooner, we have been in isolation, recording a new one. Hope you will like it.

    bless bless,

    das múm

    By the way, we must thank Chris for discovering the DJ set I mentioned above. So, Chris: Thank you, and bless bless.
