12 – Sigur Ros – Svefn-G-Englar
Categories: MF2000

My first earfull of Sigur Ros came in early 2000 while working at H Station, a web design business in Santa Monica.  Jason Mascow and I would listen to KXLU while doing our designing and when this track would come on we would crank it up and do our best to mimic the fake language that lead singer Jonsi Birgisson would belt out in an Elizabeth Frasier sort of way.  It cooed my soul and helped me to feel the most like myself that I had felt in over a decade…like my youth was reaching up to me through time and space and reminding me what it was like to have never heard music before.  Listening to it as I write this, I feel a chill going up my spine and down my arms and into each key I press.

“IT’S YOUUUUUUUUUUU-AH!!” ( That might not be what he is saying, but it is what I sing)
