song of the day - 9.13.08: sigur ros - gobbledigook

[WARNING: This video is not work or child appropriate.]

Sigur Ros Gobbledigook sélectionné dans Musique et Rock

Sigur Ros consistently blows me away with their beautiful, innovative music. The title track from their latest effort is a shining example of what a band can do when it sheds the shackles of conventional musical structure. No 4/4 time here. Just a pounding percussion heartbeat, a tapestry of joyous acoustic guitar patterns, and some crazy Icelandic vocals. The video captures the essence of the song perfectly, too. And guess what, bitches... I get to see them live in NY next week.
