I became a fan of Sigur Rós while living outside the US. Not something I listen to all the time but when the mood strikes, nothing else satisfies quite like Sigur Rós. While their music is minimal and ethereal, their live show is amazingly epic. Catch them on a rare tour of the States in the Fall.

from the band:
Sigur Rós is an Icelandic post-rock band with melodic, classical, experimental, and minimalist elements. The band is known for its ethereal sound and lead singer Jónsi’s falsetto voice. Sigur Rós means Victory Rose, named after Jonsi's little sister.
