Part of this interview is on Inni. Hilarious.

Jonsi, babysitting. Notice his adorable mismatched socks.

I've been so sick, haven't been Interwebing much, but I did draaaaaaaaaaaag my sick, wheezy, mucus-y self up to Santa Barbara and saw the S.B. Bowl show last Friday.

They were great. I'm sure, had I been feeling better, I would've thought they were phenomenal, but as I was shivering and trying not hack up a lung, my experience was somewhat compromised. Last time I saw them was in '06, so it was hard for me to remember to compare, but I thought they were just as good as I remembered.

They played my favorite song, 'Svefn-g-englar', and the accompanying light show . . . well, that WAS phenomenal! It was very beautiful.

I'm sorry you had less than a magnificent experience (but glad you got your favorite song!). Something similar happened with me at a Springsteen show last Fall. He was great, but I had an off night.

Probably a ridiculous thing to say after only hearing it twice, but that may be my favorite Sigur Ros song since Takk-era.

It's good! I like both Brennisteinn and Kveikur better but that just means this is probably going to be my favorite SR record since Takk. I also like Jónsi's vocals better when they aren't over-produced, which I think maybe this is a little bit but that's just me (and it's no big deal).

So that's my ridiculous comment after two listens.

So excited for this record. I like all the songs a lot so far.

At worst, it's a really good new Sigur Ros song.

I like the percussion they've got going on on these new songs.

This could actually be another (minor) hit for them.

As HG said when we saw them, you know new material is good when that's what you are actually waiting to hear at a live show.
