Of Monsters & Men: My Head is an Animal

Had I heard Of Monsters & Men’s full-length debut, My Head is an Animal, before compiling my Top Albums of 2012, the album most certainly would’ve been on the list. Led by singer-guitarists Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar “Raggi” Þórhallsson, Of Monsters & Men are a five-piece, follk-pop ensemble from Iceland. Their exquisite recording blends the lovely male/female harmonies of The Civil Wars and the twinkling multi-instrumental arrangements of The Low Anthem with some choral embellishments worthy of Polyphonic Spree. The standout track is “Little Talks” and other highlights are “Mountain Sound” and “Your Bones.”
