May I recommend?

Matt stumbled upon Icelandic singer Olaf Arnalds recently and her songs have been swimming through my head ever since. From what I have heard thus far she does Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, etc covers as well as songs she has written in her native language, like "Klara" - about her sister I think?

I think she is lovely. See what you think. Here are a couple of her Dylan covers...Notice her Charango - makes such a haunting, beautiful sound.

If you visit her MySpace page, you'll find:

"A voice of instantly captivating, spring water chasteness possessed of a magical, otherworldly quality that is simultaneously innocent yet ancient ('sometimes between a child and an old woman' according to no less an authority than Bjork)"
