amiina: Mixing it up, Iceland style

Icelandic five-piece band amiina takes the PopTech 2012 stage with a glockenspiel, a musical saw, a couple of violins, drums, and a laptop. They got their start as the string section for the legendary Sigur Ros and have gone on to play and record beautifully complex music. A treat to end the week.
