HJALTALIN THE CURE
Terminal (Self released via Cargo)
Album A sensation in their homeland of Iceland Hjaltin are a seven-piece who might be the volcanic island’s answer to Arcade Fire. They fuse simple, beautiful pop with complex orchestral arrangements with an end result that is fresh and stunning. Any justice, and they’ll make it big.
Disintegration – Deluxe Edition(Polydor/Uni
versal) Album This is a three-disc special version of The Cure’s eighth studio album which was first released back in 1989 and contained the huge hits Lullaby, Lovesong and Pictures Of You.
