Sigur Ros "Brennisteinn"

Four days later, and I’m still trying to pick my jaw up off of the floor from the Sigur Ros show I experienced in Manchester. Having seen them in Spain about 10 years earlier, I -thought- I had an idea of what was coming. Nope. This show could only be described as “quiet chaos,” with the drums (quite literally) taking front stage and playing the lead. Sigur Ros make music from another galaxy, loudly, and are like no other. After every song, you could hear each person in the audience mutter “holy -fu*k-.” They are simply in a class, category, and league of their own.

Hoping to get that jaw back soon…
