I read The Lord of the Rings and aspire to study astronomy in Iceland. I like hearing new music, and enjoy sharing it just as much. My wish is that you find a few songs to take with you upon leaving this site.
Last Saturday, I drove over to NYC to see Jónsi Terminal 5. I could not have been more excited since Sigur Rós has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I had high expectations, but they were exceeded beyond anything I could have imagined. He closed with a beautiful, extended rendition of “Grow Till Tall,” which you can watch above. The performance and production of both “Kolinður” and “Sinking Friendships” were also standouts, so be sure to check out those videos below.
Courtesy of NPR, you can listen to The xx’s entire set list from their show at D.C.’s 9:30 Club last Saturday. They opened for Hot Chip, whose show you can listen to in full as well. As usual, the recording is marvelously clear.
