Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust
Sigur Ros - 2008
Our friends from Iceland have made a career out of dark, moody, landscapes. Their sound as cold and bleak as the country they hail from. On their latest release, which I refuse to re-type, Sigur Ros dare to inject some happiness into their repertoire. Fear not, they are still purveyors of soundscapes, still making up languages and seemingly writing soundtracks for movies that don’t exist. But on “Med Sud…” there is a ray of sunshine. An element of pop music sneaks into their cannon, with acoustic guitars and hooks! Amazingly this all works and maybe one of their best albums ever.
Tambe ranks this as the
#2 favorite album of 2008
