sigur rós

I was one of the luckiest people in the world last night. I witnessed a concert by the Icelandic quartet that moved me and left me quite speechless. The music ranged from quiet, choir-like musings to heart-pounding, floor-shaking numbers. When the four serious, professional, multi-talented musicians gathered around the organ and the lights ebbed and glowed in rhythm with their notes, it was a truly beautiful moment. Everyone should get to witness such a moving event. Check out the music of sigur rós to bring home a piece of that magic.

Ahhhh... SO glad you brought this one to light - Sigur Ros are one of my faves!! I first heard them on NPR's "All Songs Considered" concert series a few years ago. Terrific atmospheric stuff - essential! "Takk..." is a great place to start, "()" is also very good. (There are some nice downloadable rarities on their website, too!)
