Jonsi

Many of you may not be aware that I am practically obsessed with the Icelandic band Sigur Ros. They are ethereal, other-worldly, and absolutely gorgeous. If you haven't heard them you can check out some of their best songs at the links below.

The lead singer of the band, Jon Thor Birgisson has begun a solo group called Jonsi and you can check out the first single from his upcoming album, titled "Boy Lilikoi" here. Jonsi appears to have a bit of a poppier sound than Sigur Ros, but it is still incredible. They will be doing a small North American tour coming up, so if you like it make sure to check out one of the shows. I've seen Sigur Ros twice and I can only imagine what Jon has up his sleeve with this group.

As promised here are some links to Sigur Ros songs:

"Hoppipola" from Takk...
"Glosoli" from Takk...
"Untitled 1" from Untitled
