I want to start out by saying that every time you talk about Sigur Rós you must use the official music journalist tagline; ethereal Icelandic band Sigur Rós. I put ethereal Icelandic band Sigur Rós into Google, other search engines are available, and it spat out 778,000 instances of Sigur Rós’ being described as ethereal, that makes it official then.
Yes, this is the album with that song on it, the one Sigur Ros song that everyone has heard, but nobody knows the title of. I heard last week that Bear Grylls discovered a previously undiscovered tribe in the Amazon jungle and they were all whistling that song. Somehow this album just makes more sense with snow on the ground. They should be massive in Canada.
Hidden gem; Hoppípolla, just joking
