I'm not sure if I've heard Stafraenn Hakon before.

8/10 Brett Staff review, 22 April 2010

I'm not sure if I've heard Stafraenn Hakon before. Stafraenn Hakon isn't a man's name but he is a man and I'm going to describe what he sounds like for other people to read and hopefully feel empowered by. It's kind of a weird mix of post-rock epicness applied to a lo-fi bedroom singer-songwriter and topped off with a Sigur Ros-y 'ambient indie' sort of production style. And it's pretty poppy too! I'm not totally digging the overall feel personally but it's easy to see why people are into him, it's high quality stuff. During the second track I keep thinking he's going to go into one of the verses from 'Stay Together' by Suede, which seems odd, but it's probably not as odd as the riff on the cover of Phil Collins's 'No Jacket Required' that's printed on one side of the pleasing tip-on double gatefold sleeve.
