  1. I’m sorta glad to know there are sub-genres of ambient music. People just put it to the side like it’s some weird mutant baby. Good to know.

  2. For your future reference: if there’s an umlaut and you can’t write it properly for whatever reason, it is fully acceptable (in german, and I would imagine it applies to icelandic as well) to place an e after the letter instead: Gjoell is the same thing as Gjöll.
