new to the band....what album should i start with??
I'd suggest ( ), also known as The Bracket Album.
NO!!! I hated that album the first time I heard it and almost gave up on Sigur Ros. Start with Takk or Ágætis Byrjun. Both will get you ready for (), which I now love. Hvarf-Heim could also be a good place to start.
Ágætis Byrjun. It's their most well varied album. () is great, but a bit redundant, IMO... but that's not a bad thing, per se.
However, given the circumstance that you are looking into them to give them a chance live, Heim and Heima are great. I can listen to Heim constantly. And Heima is easily one of the best concert/music films of the last 10 years.
For the Amiina show at the 9:30 Club. They had chairs out for us and everything. But I have seen some shows there where that was a good thing. I have never been blessed with a Sigur Ros set. I did try to get tickets to the Radiohead/Sigur Ros soundtracked Split Sides but yeah... Didn't happen.
Y'know, I'm digging Gobbledigook (sp). It's a bit different, under 3 minutes, pop like in structure. Really reminds me of what Einsturzende Neubauten would sound like if they were an Icelandic post-rock band; same concept of composition, similar sound (to an extent), but a bit 'brighter,' as far as texture goes.
i haven't seen them live, but i know that even if they don't fill the 2 hour slot it will be one of the best shows of the weekend.
True that. I'm pretty sure we can assume that they will play for at least their scheduled two-hour slot (or very close to it, anyway). I'm hoping they'll go on even longer, seeing as they're the last show of the night in That Tent. Plus, the band members are all in their early 30s, so they still have the energy to perform for that long. Anywho... yeah. For me, this will be the show of the weekend. Not much else even comes close. Oh, and one more thing: I'm not sure if you all know this, but you can download Gobbledigook for free on the band's website. Just FYI.
So they opened their tour last night in Mexico. Here's some vids, although they're pretty shite quality. All I know is, they still play Popplagid! I also heard they played Se Lest and Olsen Olsen. I'll post a setlist when it becomes available.
