(at home)

for my money, sigur rós create the most arresting combination of sensory pleasure, beauty, and transcendence of any artist that i can think of. the music speaks for itself and takes you anywhere you want to be. perhaps a tree-lined road in the night sky as you float underneath the stars, at once apprehensive and exhilarated by the heights you have reached. your eyes open and absorb a feast of visual wonderment, landscapes whose natural beauty is heightened by how distantly removed they seem from your own life. in a moment of clarity, tranquility has replaced inner turmoil, the creative milieu has given way to inspiration, and absolute contentment reigns supreme.

that must be what heaven is like.

heaven must be filled with sigur rós.

i can't wait.

but i guess i can wait until november 6th and november 20th. visit the heima website, visit the hvarf/heim website, or visit sigur rós.
