Ólafur Arnalds / JANUS RASMUSSEN - Musical projects...

 

#MUSIC

Ólafur Arnalds is a multi-instrumentalist from Iceland who has explored several musical genres. The ambient / electronica of late is a favourite of mine. 'Particles' with Nanna B. Hilmarsdóttir (Of Monsters and Men) is something I keep coming back to. His project 'Kiasmos' with Janus Rasmussen (Bloodgroup and Byrta) from the Faroe Islands is also a must hear - if you are into atmospheric / laid-back electronica.

Off-road vehicle porn - Humvee vs. Unimog...

 

#TECHNOLOGY

For those who need their vehicles to go from 'a to b' no matter the geography. The Humvee (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) was built for the US military (later it became the civilian Hummer H1) while the Unimog was first of all a civilian vehicle used mostly by farmers - to begin with. The Unimog video explains some of the technology behind its capabilities...
