I was hoping you'd find that one. I think it's one of the best videos ever made. Give this one a try:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwFS69nA-1w
Love Sigur Ros. I first heard of them in a 2000 Frontline piece on the music of Iceland. Also first heard of the Apparet Organ Quartet. Cool, kitsy, synth rock.
Liked that. I posted an old one in response.
Youth is not wasted on the elderly. Those folks found the best way to stay out of the path of the cemetery's intended purpose. Be Young.
Well, Patti, if you're loving all these, including Zee Avi and the Arcade Fire, I hope you're already familiar with Nellie McKaye...http://nelliemckay.com/cms/index.phphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORfG4rpZv6Y,,,abd such folks as Sam Phillips (not the Sun Records guy, but the woman) and Aimee Mann (to say nothing of the Roches).
...the Decembrists...hell, Blue Rose...
I'm a big Sigur Ros fan, too. My son is currently in Iceland on vacation, but hoping to see Sigur Ros or Bjork.
Why didn't I know about all these groups?
Hidden in plain sight, Patti...these we've been talking about are prominent enough to get booked on late-night network chat shows, from Leslie Feist on out, but you'd have to be up to catch them (and it'd help if they were having a good night), or indeed as mentioned get mentioned on NPR, of all places (I'd heard of Sarah Borges, but not heard her, before today...I'm out of the game, so to speak). For that matter, I was reminded of how good Spearhead is this morning, as Starz was running their concert film (Michael Franti's current band is sounding more and more like War ["The World is a Ghetto"/"All Day Music" War] these days, but still prone to rap...just not as rap-oriented as his previous bands the Beat-Nigs and the Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy were...the last being the only rap act I first heard in live performance on C-SPAN). And then there are those who just sneak up on you, as with the unuusually complex emotional territory explored by the otherwise rather unexceptionally poppy Sarah Bareilles, and with her biggest hit, too:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MR5xv3pt7KI
