This is Important.

Let the Right One In is probably the most lovely, sweet, gory, and perfect movie i’ve seen. i want to watch it over and over again, and i want to hug it and hold it and lie next to it and talk to it and tell it secrets and listen to it and just really be totally in love with it.

i also love Sigur Ros in a really deep and profound and lovely way.

this tribute video is important.


Aural Perfection

February 19, 2010

there must be something in the water in Iceland. because there is noting that makes me feel as hopeful and blissed out as Sigur Ros and the folks who comprise it. if you don’t know Sigur Ros, do yourself a gigantic favor and download or buy or whatever you do to obtain music. and then find Heima and watch it in a dark room, on a gigantic television. trust me on this.

Jonsi has released a solo effort, and this song “Go Do” is breathtaking.

this is my favorite Sigur Ros song. i still kick myself for missing their performance in Chicago two years ago.
