      Dikta, an Icelandic verb meaning “to compose or make something up,” remains immersed in the same passionate and soulful atmosphere it was formed in, inspiring their melodic alternative rock sound. After their debut album in 2002, the four-piece band released their first album in English in 2005 called Hunting for Happiness, expanding their European audience. Dikta filled every venue and played every festival in Iceland and opened for The Kooks during their 2011 European tour before releasing their third album, Get it Together, through the German indie label Smarten-Up Records and Rough Trade Records. Prior to releasing the album in Germany, Get it Together reached platinum sales in their home country and received four awards at the Listener’s Choice Awards.

        It’s finally here – the anticipated second episode of DontPanicTV, featuring the inconceivably-talented and masterly Icelandic rock band, Agent Fresco. Experience the music Kerrang! Magazine and The Reykjavik Grapevine call, “Complex, crafted songs, overtly skilled musicians, frequent rhythm changes, and an impeccable performance - every time, all the time. Sounds boring as fuck, right? Well… Yes, because in the hands of your AVERAGE group of overtly-trained, ambitious musicians/music scholars, the results of such a mix would almost certainly amount to an abysmal free-jazz explosion of all things scaled, stylized and lifeless. Not for Agent Fresco, though. Hell, no. Agent Fresco is a band with a mission - one that will, without a doubt, touch the lives of many music-lovers in the not-too-distant future. For theirs is the future.” One cannot hum much higher acclaim than that, so leap, boogie, rage, sing, and experience the truly one-of-a-kind Icelandic rock detonation that is Agent Fresco.

                This little study was shot on a freezing cold day in New York in a waiting room in M.O.M.A in 2006. "I came across this wonderful man sleeping and talking in his dreams. i only filmed him for about 15 minutes as i thought he might wake completely, he did half open his eyes at one point but didnt seem worried by my presence. I imagined he might have been a boxer once from his nose , who knows, i dont, but i loved his face. I think i over edited this and would love to re edit it.. but in the mean time here he is and here it is. " RH The music is by a band called Diktor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dikta
