You guys. This band. I can’t even deal. I don’t usually write reviews this…free-handed, but I feel like this might at least get you to go listen to this amazing album.

San Narciso, Piledrive, My Magellan, and Aveda Dollars are my three top pics right off the bat, but hell – this whole album is amazing. Its like Postal Service fused with Mates of State and Stars, with a little bit of crack. Grittier, dirtier, thicker, and a bit more complex.

A few things:

  • First: Not sure if San Nacriso is referencing LA or SF, I think it applies to both – but that doesn’t really matter. It could be any self-centered city. Love the chord progression used here. Any synthy song in the 120-130bmp range with call-and-response female/male vocals that lives in a minor key steals my heart.
  • Secondly: the driving pre-chorus/chorus makes me just want to “drop, attack, and fall” all the time, to anyone in my way (or, really just dance like a fool on the sidewalk).
  • Next, does anyone else think that breakdown starting after 3:15 of My Magellan takes some notes (see what I did there?) from Take a Bow by Muse? This song gives me the chills, in the best way possible. Amazing melodies that just get thicker and thicker and mmph. And how about that driving bass drum? And the honky-tonk-sounding piano? And that fake-out when you think its going to blow but doesn’t. Deceptive. Holy moly.
  • There’s so much more to say, but I’d rather just go back to listening to the album. And you should too.

In support of their new album Valtari, Sigur Rós has hosted a “Mystery Film Experiment” where filmmakers were invited to create a video for each album track. Today, directors Anafelle Liu, Dio Lau, and Ken Ngan were declared winners for their take on “Fjögur piano,” which they call Skinned. (via Watch: Sigur Rós – “Fjögur píanó” | Under The Radar)
