Music Montag: Erlend Øye

We’ve slept on Erlend Øye‘s new album since it was released, but now seems the right time to celebrate Legao. Oddly released just after the end of summer, Øye’s second solo release is totally sun-baked, despite being recorded in Reykjavík with an Icelandic reggae group (which, apparently, is a thing).

So pour some honey in your Ingwertee, and bask in the humid, holiday romance vibes of “Garota”, filmed in Seoul. And for bonus open-air Øye, check out The Whitest Boy Alive’s white boy dancing in D E N A’s “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools”, which is also guaranteed to cure those winter blues.
