    Blogger Scott McDonald, who covers music in San Diego for a few different publications and is the editor of the Eight24 blog, is the latest addition to SoundDiego's editorial team:

    Before her recent tour kickoff with Blonde Redhead at the House of Blues, I was supposed to do an on-site video interview with Icelandic singer/songwriter Olof Arnalds.

    It was impossible to hear over Blonde Redhead’s soundcheck, so we decided to improvise. Arnalds and her tour manager, Karen, jumped into my truck, and we raced down to the Embarcadero behind the San Diego Convention Center. Sunset was quickly approaching, but Arnalds was ready to go almost immediately. Luckily, I was able to capture this interview and an amazing on-the-fly performance of the title track from her sophomore album. Enjoy!
