Icelandic folk group Of Monsters And Men discuss the three types of Icelanders, not knowing Passion Pit remixed them, and giving Jay Leno dried fish.

Of Monsters And Men were judged the best band in Iceland at a battle of the bands. Then a Philly radio station picked them up. Then another did. Then the blogs. Then they became an international folk sensation.

Nanna, Kris and Arni drop in to talk about giving Jay Leno crazy Icelandic foodstuffs, debate about who approved a Passion Put remix, the dueling vocals that define their sound, the three options for their countrymen, shitty hardcore, and more.
