Sigur Ros

We’re going to see Sigir Ros in February at the Uptown Theatre! If you don’t know who they are, go check them out now! Beautiful, atmospheric music from Iceland.

From their site:

the band consists of jón þor (jónsi) birgisson (vocals, guitars), kjartan (kjarri) sveinsson (keyboards), orri páll dýrason (drums) and georg (goggi) holm (bass). they create a remarkable sound considering the basic instruments used. jónsi often uses a cello bow to play his guitar, resulting in an effects-laden, atmospheric, totally unique sound. his voice is probably the most unique thing about sigur rós. a falsetto somewhere between thom yorke and a choir boy. the band have released three albums so far, plus one remix album (von brigði – recycle bin). the first album, which has not been released outside of iceland, is called von (hope) and is quite experimental and ambient.

Go download some tracks from their site now!

On that other bit of news that you are all curious about – all I’m going to say is that it went really well. I don’t want to jinx anything by saying more. I’ll let you know when I know more!
