BEST NEW TRACKS: YAGYA "SLEEPYGIRL 2"

7/29/14

Despite barely over 300,000 residences and having most of its interior covered by an uninhabitable volcanic desert, Iceland is a veritable hotbed of music, featuring artists like Yagya and his cool song, "Sleepygirl 2."

Taken from his latest album (you guessed it) Sleepygirls, Aðalsteinn Guðmundsson brings his usual dub/techno stylings to this atmospheric, house jam. "Sleepygirl 2" is the standout cut from Yagya's first record on Delsin Records. It's a dreamlike track that stays true to its name. This song actually feels like I do when I'm wandering around heavily sleep-deprived. Yagya is a hidden gem for chill, ambient music who doesn't get the pub he deserves, probably because he lives on a remote Nordic island.

Yajna is Hinduism ritual offering that's accompanied by the chanting of Vedic mantras, and it's where Guðmundsson takes his name from. I can't think of a more fitting moniker, or a more appropriate song to embody said moniker.

It may put you into some sort of hypnotic trance, but Yagya "Sleepygirl 2" is a song you need to hear.
