017/100: "Kveikur" by Sigur Rós
Sigur Rós are one of my favourite bands and their seventh studio album, "Kveikur", has become a destination when I am looking for something upbeat and loud.
"Kveikur" is their first album as a three-piece, recorded after the departure of Kjartan Sveinsson, and it really gives me hope for the band’s future.
Each Sigur Rós album has its own idiosyncrasies, and "Kveikur" is no exception: it is a broad, vibrant, wall-of-sound; with Jonsi's rather unique vocals contributing to the overall ambience exceptionally well.
From the opening of “Brennisteinn” you know you are in for an outstanding ride.
