It's hard not to get lost in the other world that is Sigur Ros. Unfortunately, the ethereal Icelandic band with the made-up language, scrapped upcoming plans for 2010 because some of the members are becoming fathers and want to enjoy time with their youngsters. Can't blame 'em!
So, while Sigur Ros is on hiatus, we can pencil in the year to enjoy the solo project of it's falsetto'd singer/guitarist, Jonsi.
Go is coming out April 5th. I played the first single from it, "Go Do" this morning. The melody explodes into this songbird-like fantasy world that only Jonsi could inhabit. As usual, it's quite magical.
Enjoy this free download of "Boy Lilikoi"
