We saw Sigur Rós at the State Theatre this evening. I first heard of Sigur Rós from their 2008 album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, which I got into after visiting Iceland in 2012 and then saw them in 2013 when they played in Minneapolis.
I enjoy their music but with every album it seems to get more “ethereal” or even ambient, and slow. Their newest work is a far leap from that 2008 album. It is good, but I wouldn’t mind if they picked up the pace on some of the newer albums.
