Number 5 is ALIVE!!!!
Hi guys and gals.
Quite strange to believe that we are up to the 5th Mixtape already! I'm really enjoying finding all this new stuff to listen to. I've found some real gems in amongst it all. Mixtape #5 is no different. Once again there is 12 new bands with 12 new songs. A tasty little foundation to lay future Mixtape's on. So I best not ramble on much longer and let you get to the good stuff.
Hope you enjoy #5!!! It's ALIVE!!!

Sin Fang Bous
Welcome to the Wunderkammer. Pop music with a bow, a present from Reykjavik and from Sindri Mar Sigfusson. A present that he gave to us and especially to himself. A surprise album, a search game in terms of pop music.
