Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust
Inspired by the unfettered feeling of the acoustic performances filmed during HEIMA, Sigur Ros adopted a looser approach in creating their fifth album, MED SUD I EYRUM VID SPILUM ENDLAUST. The album consequently is fresher and more human than anything they've previously recorded. MED SUD I EYRUM VID SPILUM ENDALAUST is truly a groundbreaking album for Sigur Ros. It's the first time they've attempted to write, record, mix, release and support an album in the same year. Notoriously known for their laborous writing/recording style and their icelandic roots, Sigur Ros decided to record an album out of Iceland for the first time. The opening track, "Gobbledigook," is a manifesto setter with it's shifting/no time signature. On the last track "All Alright," Sigur Ros find themselves singing a song solely in English for the first time.
