    WTF do they put in the water over in Iceland? Why does everyone over there just make beautiful things all day long?

    Perfect rainy-day music. So simple, but so beautiful and melodic… definitely puts you in a mood.

    I love this! will probably always be closely associated with balmorhea in my head, because those two make up most of my “library soundtrack” while I’m writing my final thesis. sometimes I feel that Iam wasting them listening to them all day, but their music is just so beautiful and relaxing.
