3. Asgeir’s ‘The Sky Is Painted Gray Today’

Over the training course of 3 albums, Icelandic singer-songwriter Asgeir has made a catalog of bracing, melodic rock and electronics that usually reflect the forbidding attractiveness of his homeland. On his most current, the 4-keep track of “The Sky Is Painted Gray Nowadays,” he strips the audio back to its acoustic folks roots but manages to capture the very same perception of earthy grace. Moody and melancholic, with illustrations or photos of automobile crashes (“Sunday Drive”) and storm-tossed lives (the title monitor), “The Sky Is Painted Gray Today” offers wonderfully chilly counterpoint to his before content.
