Two sausages kissing... what I fondly refer Sigur Ros' third album as (Google Image "Sigur Ros album art" and you'll see what I'm talking about), and with news of their fifth outing being recorded as I write this, you can imagine how giddy I am quickly becoming. Sigur Ros is just one of those bands that you can just get totally lost in. The hauntingly beautiful ethereal music they create, coupled with Jonsi's incredible falsetto, is just incredible. They somehow manage to combine post-rock, experimental, classical and minimalist elements and craft them into truly breath-taking songs, but you already knew that didn't you? So we'll have to wait for the new Sigur Ros album until late this year, which means that we might not get to see it until next year, but until then you can pick up that documentary DVD/CD combo they released this year (try eBay), or just throw in one of their four albums and wait patiently.
