Iceland’s Dr. Spock Releases New Album

By Iceland Review

Icelandic punk rockers Dr. Spock released their second album this week, entitled Falcon Christ. The band’s first album, Dr. Phil, was released in 2005 and was described as a “cold and nutritional splash to the ears of rock-thirsty listeners.”

According to Smekkleysa Record Store, Dr. Spock holds a unique position in Iceland’s musical flora when it comes to musical creation, humor and concert performance.

The band chooses to promote its music in original ways, for example by holding concerts in spinning classes at the gym and touring the capital region while playing on the platform of a truck.

Falcon Christ includes 12 new songs with Dr. Spock, including “Fálkinn” and “Dr. Organ” that have repeatedly been played on Icelandic radio stations lately. The band also entered last year’s run-up to the Eurovision Song Contest with “Hvar ertu nú?”

The band’s members come from different backgrounds; from bands like Ham, Ensími, Motion Boys, Funkstrasse and Quicksand Jesus.
