The Musical Journey Continues! Hello, Sigur Rós

By William Alexander | January 19, 2009

Sigur Rós is perhaps the most persistently beautiful, exciting, and unique band I listen to.  Their music videos are a complete set of art in and of themselves, but their sound is what I’m really here to talk about.  I have been known to throw on my Audio Technica studio headphones (which I highly recommend if you’re in the market) and lay on something comfortable while I simply exist someplace between reality and total paradise for hours with Sigur Rós melting my eardrums into peaceful oblivion.  (What a run on sentence!)

Once again, Experiment Three has come to my rescue and conveniently uploaded everything one might want to find by these guys.  (Here is their Last.Fm page).  I really recommend you follow the link at the bottom of this post and download everything, rather than listening to me blab on about their amazingness.  I’d go in chronological order and give it a listen when you’re ready for a full experience, since their atmosphere is really remarkable, provided you allow it to be.

As a random piece of trivia, (one of the reasons I love them)— the entire ( ) album is in a made up language.  Hmm.  Did I mention they sing in Icelandic?   If God spoke directly in a human language, it would probably be Icelandic.  It would probably be through these albums.  Also, I KNOW God speaks through the use of a violin bow on a guitar.  What an amaaaaazing sound.

Here ya go!
