If Apparat Organ Quartet had plugged guitars in to Marshall amps instead of their Moogs, one might easily have confused them for a danceable Motörhead. Effortlessly switching between dance floor-fillers and headbanging anthems, Iceland’s Apparat Organ Quartet is sometimes described as “Machine Rock and Roll.”

AOQ started work on their latest ablum, Pólýfónía, immediately after the release of their 2002 self-titled first album, and finally completed it 8 whole years later. But the wait seems to have paid off, as the release was greeted with rave reviews in the Icelandic press and was featured on many end-of-year lists, including “album of the year” by Fréttabladid, Iceland’s largest newspaper.

Every note on Pólýfónía is hand-played, there is not a sequencer or computer in sight. In concert and on the record, the band plays keyboards from their extensive collection of Jurassic analog machinery, including Russian synths, malfunctioning Hammonds, and cicuit-bent Casios. The band even has an on-going agreement with the sanitation authorities in Reykjavik according to which the band is to be notified each time they receive an organ or keyboard to be recycled.

After finding success in Europe, AOQ have signed to Head in the Sand Records and are releasing Pólýfónía in Canada. No longer strangers to North America, AOQ were the featured guest of KEXP for Reykjavik Calling 2012 in Seattle, their annual celebration of Icelandic music.
