Thanks for posting that. Pretty excited to see that they're recording in L.A. this very minute and hope to have an album out by the end of the year!

Yesterday, it came up in my seventh grade class that I am flying to Denver to see Sigur Ros. The kids had never heard of them but wanted me to describe their music. As a treat today, I played Daudalogn for them. They loved it and said it was so beautiful, pretty, etc. One boy said, I'm buying this album tonight on iTunes. It's gonna be the best $10 I ever spent! Another student said, I could listen to that forever!

I have hope for the future right now, you guys.

One of my friends sent me an email saying he's listened to that clip more than Valtari. Lolz.

Sigur are coming to a festival I'm going to , I know nothing of their work,
but I heard a few things of them and like them. Where do I start to figure them out?
What is their best work?

Takk is generally considered their most easily accessible album, it's likely their most popular as well. Agaetis Byrjun is probably their most critically acclaimed. Those two albums, and a handful of () songs (1, 4, and 8), are probably the "most important" to hear in preparation for a concert in my opinion.

All of their albums are pretty great though, so you can pretty much listen to anything aside from Von, and be ok.

Yes Werchter. Not sure if I'm going yet. I'm already seeing them in Vorst Nationaal but seeing them twice wouldn't be bad.

As to your question. I would listen to Agaetis Byrjun first but Takk... is a good starting point as well. If you like either of those be sure to listen to (). It's my favorite though a little less accessible. Untitled #8 is a must like mofo said: they end every show with it.

Ticket for sale

I have a spare ticket for sale for the show in DC.
It's section 113 Row D, and I'll sell it for face value.

Admittedly, I am curious about the band's "olfactory specifications."
