Sigur Ros “Inni”

December 4, 2011

Keyword density just doesn’t work when you’re Sigur Ros. My keyboard doesn’t even have a lot of these characters. So this is a live album from London, and if you don’t know, Sigur Ros are from Iceland and have a woman who often sings but have nothing to do with Bjork or the Sugarcubes. They play this post-modern stuff that is hard to describe unless you know what post-modern sounds like. The tracks are all really long. That’s what you have to know.
“Svefn-G-Englar” has the woman singing and is pretty good. “Vid Spilum Endalaust” is more of a traditional indie rock song with the man singing. This might be the one for you.
If you like Tim Tebow, you’ll be disappointed with “E-Bow.” Not everything has to do with him, you know.
The other track I like is “Popplagid.” It’s about 15 minutes with male falsettos, and it builds and builds. If you’re into the ultimate in Sigur Ros, this is the one for you.
