When considering the history of BAST, it’s earthy interior and egg yolk yellow frame, few artists have probably had as much of a emotionally moving performance as the Ey sisters on August the thirteenth. Perhaps taking cues from the finer MTV Unplugged performances from the Nineties, the composers of “Ain’t Got Nobody” made  folk speechless with their class, taste and style. Their three part melodies fluttered on the tracks, up and down, left and right, flowing and following in exquisite, solemn beauty. At times I was reminded of Brother Grass, Vashti Bunyan, and at times Marianne Faithfull, and all the while I knew that these compositions were precious. As usual, Dora Mutsue gave the papers something to write about, and in so doing, further perpetuated the notion that her venues are among  the best in Reykjavík to see live music. With that said, listen. You won’t be disappointed.  I hold that this is some of the best music I’ve heard in Reykjavík.
