Artist: Benny Crespo’s Gang | Single: Birthmarks

It’s been a while, but now it’s happening. Seven years after the release of their first album, Benny Crespo’s Gang are putting the finishing touches on their second album Minor Mistakes.

They describe themselves as “A progressive rock band that evokes the quirky fuzz of Sonic Youth and the dirty sludge of Queens of the Stone Age The band is co-fronted by both Helgi and Lovisa and together they sound majestically refreshing.”

Their self-titled debut album came in 2007 and immediately received critical acclaim, earning them three nominations at the Icelandic Music Awards, including newcomer and album of the year .

You can get a taste of the new album and see the video for Birthmarks on their Facebook-page.
