Sigur Ros’ Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

Inspired by the unfettered feeling of the acoustic performances filmed during Heima, Sigur Rós adopted a looser approach in creating their fifth album, Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust. The album consequently is fresher and more human than anything they’ve previously recorded. Rough edges, cracked notes, and the sound of fingers on strings are audible, resulting in tracks (such as Íllgresi) that prove to be the band’s sparsest and most affecting work to date. Worry not though, plenty of electric guitar can be heard throughout the album ensuring Sigur Rós commitment to challenging sonic limitations. Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust is truly a groundbreaking album for Sigur Rós. It s the first time they ve attempted to write, record, mix, release and support (by touring) an album in the same year. Notoriously known for their laborious writing and recording style, Sigur Rós decided to record the album outside of Iceland for the first time. Recording, mixing and mastering sessions took place in such un-Reykjavik cities as New York (Sear Sound and Sterling Sound), London (Abbey Road and Assault & Battery) and Havana. The result is pretty much their leave home album, the anti-Heima.

Listen to the Sigur Rós song, Gobbledigook.
