Only found out about Ásgeir this weekend and his latest album has been out since last year. If you’re into Icelandic sound like Sigur Ros mixed with Bon Iver, you’ll devour this album. Incredible work by this 22-year old.
Forgive yourself for not being the richest, the thinnest, the tallest, the one with the best hair. Forgive yourself for not being the most successful, the cutest or the one with the fastest time. Forgive yourself for not winning every round.
Forgive yourself for being afraid.

British lad Luke Leighfield is the second former SoundCloud employee who went on to be a full-time musician (the first was Ian Hooper of Mighty Oaks). Luke raised money on Kickstarter to go produce his second album with his dream producer Jim Wirt.
This is the first song he’s sharing from that album. If you’re into Ben Folds or Something Corporate, Luke would be their love child.
