Product Description

For those not yet in the know, FAMR's music is strikingly beautiful, energetic, melodious post-rock. Along with their energetic live shows, their debut Reistu Pig Vio e record won them a huge fanbase and a slew of accolades, including favourable comparisons to Explosions in the Sky, Caspian and Godspeed. Fellow Icelanders Sigur Rós took them on world tour as support and even described them as “a band with the potential to out-Mogwai.”

These ten new songs were recorded in the Sigur Rós studio in Iceland with LA producer Scott Hackwith. FAMR have been working with British visual artists on creating a live backdrop for four songs from the album, curated by former Big Chill visual resident, John Rixon.

For a long time, after watching the incredible Sigur Ros in Bournemouth, I wracked my brains trying to remember who the warm up band were? I knew they were from Iceland - but thought they were called...something...Mountains? As it happens, they were called For a Minor Reflection and for the life of me, I don't know where I got the Mountains bit from? Anyway, they were absolutely brilliant live and coming from that strange volcanic island - to the north of us, there are obvious comparisons with Sigur Ros (minus Jonsi's vocals) and a band across the pond, USA's Explosions in the Sky - two formidable creators of experimental/alt rock.

For a band that creates purely instrumental work, the music itself is highly addictive and true testement to their composing skills that they have the ability to keep the listener enthused without the use of a vocalist. There's an element of beauty to all their songs, courtesy of the subtle use of piano and strings. Many of the pieces are so gentle in progression, you never quite know the outcome - but whatever the finale - the gradual formation of sound will keep you fully engrossed as powerhouse percussion and guitar emerges, creating a glorious crescendo of noise.

Thank you Iceland - not for your spouting volcano ash cloud, but for yet another phenomenal and addictive musical discovery.

Höldum í átt að óreiðuThis is an awesome piece of work. Having picked up the first album on their support slot to SIGUR ROS and thoroughly enjoyed that, I had no hesitation in purchasing the follow up. It is brilliant and if David Attenbrough needs atmospherics for nature programmes having used Sigur Ros to death. Look no further! Every piece on this album hits the spot.If you like Ulrich Schnauss, Einaudi, Sigur Ros and Mogwai. Buy this!

excellent album, quite a progression from their first album, but as usual every song is individual and holds you to the very last note.

I saw this guys supporting Sigur Ros back at the time the "Endealust" album from SR was published and I was already deeply intrigued by the avant-rock these guys are able to create on stage. What really engaged the listener on this album is the formidable combustion of experimental rock that fuse with the typical Icelandic aura but is going a step higher than any other band coming from this part of the world. I am enjoying so much to listen to this album, they truly are, despite their young age, very skilled musicians and the imperfections are so minimal that they can be barely heard. I wish so much great success for a band that is really so close to make it for the Big Audience. A must-buy album, definitely.

Simply beautiful...... 2 Jun. 2012
By Idoru76 - Published on Amazon.com
This album, which I came across by accident, is breath-taking. Each song takes you on a journey in your mind. If you like instrumental albums, this is the one. Not as complex as a Sigur Ros album, but worth every listen!
