three albums of unreleased solo electronic music from jónsi

23 NOVEMBER 2018

frakkur was the artist name jónsi used for his experiments in electronic music in the early years of the 21st century. working on his own, either at home in reykjavík, in hotel rooms on tour with sigur rós, or later at his boyfriend’s house in boston, jónsi spent endless hours diving into then-new bits of kit and programming, having fun and seeing how far he could push things, all entirely outside the bounds of his day job with the band.

the legacy is three collections of work totalling 24 tracks at 108 minutes – here collated into one triple album – each made a year or so apart, under slightly different circumstances and with different equipment.
