Your Weekly Women to Listen to: FROGG, Little Fish and more

Well, I totally overslept this morning and now feel as though my brain
can’t keep up with the coffee I’m pouring down my throat. I hope you’re
having a great day so far and if you haven’t read my New Music Tuesday column from yesterday, I strongly urge you to do so. Yesterday was kind
of a ridiculously great day for new music. Don’t worry, I won’t slack
off in bringing the heat with my suggestions today. Speaking of heat,
if you haven’t checked out the insane mash-up of style="font-weight: bold;">Robyn and style="font-weight: bold;">Whitney Houston yet, get your ass
in gear and then get it ready to shake.

File Under: Folk indie rock

From: Iceland

For Fans of: Mumford &
Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Noah and the Whale,
hipster sports like kickball & dodgeball, wearing your favorite
sweater or sweatshirt until  it is practically see-through, Laura
Marling, optimism, progressive dinner parties.

Bonus: This is actually the
first non-electronic band from Iceland that I’ve listened to that I can
remember. At the 2011 Icelandic Airwaves Festival, the group was
labeled by KEXP as “easily the most buzzed about band”. “Easily” -
that’s some serious swag.
