Iceland's contributions to the pop music landscape have left the country with a reputation for grand artistic statements by idiosyncratic and occasionally pretentious visionaries. Think Bjork, Mum and Sigur Ros.

One-time Mum associate Olof Arnalds is a lot more understated, but she's just as quirky as her grandiose countrymen. Imagine a more spare and streamlined Joanna Newsom, and you're getting there.

Louisville's Cheyenne Marie Mize will bring her Feist-meets-Sufjan folk to the Wexner Center as Friday's opening act.
