Tour Notes::Benni Hemm Hemm new video and extended tour

Iceland’s Benni Hemm Hemm will be touring the US for the first time with a full 11 piece band, starting with their July 5 appearance at NYC’s Mercury Lounge – also, there are a few additional shows since we last updated you. The band’s sophomore album, Kajak, was released last month on Morr Music. This video, for “I Can Love You in a Wheelchair, Baby” is for a song from the band’s self-titled debut album and features an Icelandic teenager auditioning for something called “Freestyle Keppni” with an interpretive dance / karaoke performance of the song. “Freestyle Keppni” could be anything from the local high school talent show to Icelandic Idol, for all we know. It’s up to you to determine whether the omission of any actual loving in a wheelchair is a plus or minus.
