[SCANDINAVIAN SKETCHES] For those of you not lucky enough to visit Iceland, let me introduce to you armchair-travel specialist Olafur Arnalds. The Icelandic composer and multi-instrumentalist captures the stark vastness of his homeland through atmospheric neoclassical sketches that shimmer like the Northern Lights. Arnalds, a onetime metal drummer, has found a new outlet in looped strings and gusty vocals. His latest effort, For Now I Am Winter, is a transcendent flight through the Scandinavian countryside, fit with expansive swaths of violin and synth and unpredictable, volcanic bursts of charging percussion. It is one of the prettiest, most haunting albums of 2013.
