Jónsi of Sigur Ros is back with a more daily listenable LP but still keeps the classic Icelandic sound that he’s known and loved for. This song gets me excited to think there might be more days ahead that will make me what to put on albums by Jónsi.
Now with David Letterman and Rolling Stone fame I wonder what Fleet Foxes has has in store for us in 2010, I hope we get something like Blue Ridge Mountains, it has that Midlake, Band Of Horses and Choir Of Young Believers touch with infectious piano and strumming.
One thing I like to ask certain boutique record stores is what is the most surprising selling record and a couple times the clerks have said Pantha Da Prince, Etherea which was in East Village in New York told me they went thru over 200 copies which blew my mind. Well his new release is on Rough Trade and the only song i’ve heard is pretty interesting, a lot of random bells, glasses, and maybe even ornaments being played over Bola like IDM techno, looking forward to the rest of the LP.
If Hollywood decides to keep butchering up our childhood favorite cartoons then I hope when they get to He-Man they atleast get Gatekeeper to do the soundtrack, they’d be perfect for it, its like Moroder-esque with these more distort organic field recordings during the epic parts, looking for more from these guys.
