Few bands mean as much to me as Sigur Rós. They've been a leading form of inspiration since I heard them back in 2006. I can't think of any other band that has such a deep resonance in my soul. It might sound weird but there's always that one band's sound that feels like it's in tune with who you are. I was fortunate enough to see them kick off their first concert in four years last night right in my home town of Philadelphia. Words can't express how excited I was to be able to see them in concert at the start of the Valtari tour.
The setlist was pretty awesome:
1. Ekki Múkk
3. Ný Batterí
4. Í Gær
8. Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása
10. Með Blóðnasir
11. Olsen Olsen
And Jonsi was insane to see live. I've never seen a voice sound so similar to the studio recordings. Simply incredible.
Is anyone else planning on seeing them? Any die hard fans out there? If you've never heard of them, here's some songs to try.
