Although many of us got to know about her through a record full of magic and sensuality, “Without Sinking” (Touch, 2009), Icelandic Hildur Ingveldardóttir Guðnadóttir had already been making people sigh in admiration for a good five years, both in the company of others (as a member of Angel, or as regular collaborator of múm, Pan Sonic, BJ Nielsen, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Stilluppsteypa or Jóhann Jóhannsson) and on her own. Three years before she made “Without Sinking” under her own name, Hildur had already delivered her first album under the moniker of Lost In The Hildurness. We know she’s been working on her new album for a while now, but before we hear it, lets recover her obscure and seductive past as Lost In The Hildurness. Around 14th September, Touch will be re-releasing a remastered version of “ Mount A”, an album published originally in 2006 on the Irish 12 Tónar imprint on which Guðnadóttir sings and plays cello, vibraphone, viol, zither, khuur, gamelan and harp. The same spell, only younger.
