The latest from the Norman Records where-are-they-now files is this brand new offering from Icelandic post-rock survivor Stafraenn Hakon (real name Olafur Josephsson), a man I remember fondly for his downbeat twinkly slow-burners, tasteful slide guitar and fancy handmade packaging back in the days when Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Mogwai were considered fresh and innovative.

Much like those bands, Josephsson has persevered cockroach-like into the twenty-teens whilst still playing a quite similar style, although I’d say that this latest release on Sound In Silence is a bit of a more varied collection than I’ve heard from him before. There’s the expected mix of slowcore (there’s even a couple of vocal-led tracks here) and twinkly introspective post-rock, but on this one Josephsson also dabbles in more minimal and ambient textures, with some stretched out drones and fragile near-nothings scattered amongst the more melodic pieces. It’s taking me back to the year 2000 a little bit but there’s some truly lovely stuff on here which will delight those who feared all the second-tier post-rockers had called it a day by now.
