Sigur Ros – Gobbledigook

Running around in the nip as an earthquake crackles in the background seems to be a most liberating of experiences. How else could you explain Sigur Ros and their new Animal Collectivesque bouncy new direction. Out of the blue the cinematic and delicate sense of wonder is pushed aside and in its place a brash stampede of handclaps/drums propel Jonsi’s uncommonly lively vocals. As ever I am enamoured and with a buzz in my ears I have been playing it endlessly. It all adds up to an intriguing primer for the new album ‘með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust’ which is out at end of next month. And the surprises should keep rolling as one of the tracks is said to be sung in English, heresy I hear you roar but since much of the album was recorded outside of Iceland (another first) you’ve gotta give them some latitude. Sigur Ros play Electric Picnic at the end of the summer, I am going to see them, I will be happy and fully clothed. KD
