Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Sigur Ros coming to Durham

As you know, I live in NC, so we have plenty of shows that come through here, between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. One act that I never thought would journey into our neck of the woods was the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, but they are on their way here via The Carolina Theatre in Durham on September 7th, and I don't know what to expect. I have been a huge fan since agaetis byrjun and () blew me away. Their new album, "takk", is out September 12th and the tracklisting is as follows:

01 takk...
02 glósóli
03 hoppípolla
04 með blóðnasir
05 sé lest
06 sæglópur
07 mílanó
08 gong
09 andvari
10 svo hljótt
11 heysátan

Check out their offical site for more info and downloads (mp3 + video). Below are 2 tracks from () and a Quicktime video for the absolutely amazing "Unititled 1"...enjoy

(mp3) untitled #4 (a.k.a. njósnavélin / the nothing song)
untitled #8 (a.k.a. popplagið / the pop song)
(qtv) untitled #1 [a.k.a. vaka]

    I been searching and searching for njósnavélin and it seemed more difficult for me than it really was. I just wanted to say thank you so,so,so much. This song is what made me know she was the one. Yup, my own words are in it some where. Thanks for all the info!!

    You are truly welcome. Sigur Ros are one of those bands that can provide moments of clarity and can take you to "that place" where everything is o.k.
