My newest obsession

wow you guys. I can't hardly calm down enough to tell you this.

I have found some PHENOMENAL music.

They're called "Sigur Ros" and they're from Iceland. It is some of the most beautiful and original music i've heard. i'm not even sure how i found them. they've got four albums out to date, and i read that they're getting ready to release a fifth. One album which has no name, but it titled " ( ) " is written entirely in "hopelandic," a language created by the group that has no translation. it's mesmirizing. seriously. Promise me you'll at least TRY it....they're not for everyone, but they just might be for YOU! leave me a comment and let me know what you think (also, if you already know and love them, then i totally respect you, and want to know what else you listen to...)

I've come to a conclusion.

Bjork=icelandic

and

sigur ros=icelandic

therefore

iceland=AWESOME

Hey, I have enjoyed...your blog is informative - even entertaining.

I have a halloween sites. They pretty much covers costumes and masks related stuff.

Thanks again and I'll be sure to bookmark you.

yes, THE vanilla ice was a hoot. he's actually a real person, as opposed to a pod person. it was shocking. and, he's all like, faithful to his wife and stuff. go on vanil (that's what i call him, vanil).

I saw The Vanilla Ice in concert. I'd have to say TVI was one of the worst shows I've ever seen.

I've heard much about these Sugar Rio dudes. It may be time to investigate.

You make me laugh. I enjoyed reading some of your old stuff.

These guys have some interesting stuff. I really was interested in there song olsen olsen to see if it was about the twins. Turns out i have no idea because they make as much sense as I do which some times is very little. though i enjoyed there stuff i think you made one mistake in discribibg them and there country. Youe said Iceland= AWESOME but from listening to them I have come to the conclusion that Iceland = LSD
maybe I'm wrong but i know when I have heard trippy music and they definately have tripped lately.

Breanna said...

Ryan-
thanks for taking me seriously and actually checking them out! I'm so proud of you...and you're completely entitled to your LSD stance. all i know is that i LOVE them...and they're great music for falling asleep to.

just because ninety percent of my music listening time is devoted to THE vanilla ice, doesn't mean i don't know who sigur ros is....

the other ten percent of my listening is very lsd laden. i mean, eclectic.

Haha I remember seeing my first byork video I ever saw there was some stuffed bear chasing her the whole time it was kind of scary.. But yes They are very interesting... musically. Not interesting like the dork your trying to describe in a nice way but interesting like what is that sound made with/ Sound like a slide on a violin or something. Similar to the thoughs I have about weezer's sound. But they are definately more interesting than my fav weez

It is beautiful.

What I don't understand is how they would come up with names for their songs if they are in no language. Then again, I don't read Icelandic so maybe the names of the songs are made up too!
