Jonsi's solo album–in English!

22 Feb

Oh man, I cannot wait for this. I like me some Sigur Ros, but you can only listen to that for so long before you start to imagine you are some kind of special glitter fairy in magic unicorn land. This sounds basically the same, but a little less ambient, I think. It’s just strange to hear Jonsi singing in English. I’m so used to him singing in his made-up language of ‘Hopelandic’ and Icelandic. I guess being able to understand what he is saying (sometimes) will mitigate the daydream coma you go into after listening to Takk

Go is out April 6th on XI Recordings.

    big fan of sigur rós, but this sounds a bit weird.Quite weird actually. Will definitely check his album when it gets out though..

      Hm, I really don’t think it’s all that different other than the tempo change…but to each his own!
