a selection of beautiful instrumentals recorded live in the intimate setting of arnalds’ living room with a small cast of musicians.

following in the spirit of arnalds' critically acclaimed ‘found songs’ (2009) where he wrote, recorded & released a free song every day for a week, this time ólafur takes the idea further & invites the audience into the comfort of his living room. the delicate piano & string based pieces range from subtle, melodic explorations with 1 or 2 collaborators  to squeezing a 14-piece orchestra into the room, capturing a swooping, epic composition. there is a tangible kinship & shared musical vision on display in these works & you can’t help but envy the neighbours. it’s a stunning set of compositions for fans of max richter, a winged victory for the sullen & nils frahm.

***SPECIAL EXTRA LIMITED EDITION 10" Vinyl includes a DVD of the recording session - only available in selected shops!***
