In Iceland We Sing Because Our Doodads Freeze
Yesterday I discovered the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, which in Icelandic means Victory Rose. In the subsequent web browsing I've hear their music described as alternative, post-rock, and ambient. The group is composed of four men and the vocalist sings a mixture of Icelandic and nonsense lyrics in falsetto. (It's all Icelandic to me.) The result is quite captivating. Their most recent album is available as a stream on their website. Take a listen.
You can read more about them and find more links to their music in this NRO article by John Miller who likes them despite confessing in a previous article his love of Iron Maiden.
I have to say, I'm extremely displeased at having clicked the link. I mean, I like new, different music, but you're right: this is the sound someone with frozen nads makes.Post a Comment
