Sigur Rós: Heima

October 21, 2007

Icelandic post-rock phenomenon Sigur Rós are about to release a film, Heima (it means “at home” roughly). Here’s the trailer:

You can watch all that in much better quality on the band’s website. The film will be premiered in the UK at BBC2’s Electric Proms, and there’s a clip from it on the BBC website. It’s basically Sigur Rós creating epic post-rock soundscapes in the desolate and beautiful landscapes of their home country. A perfect match really.

And I’ll always be in awe of a band who can make a song sound devastatingly moving and uplifting, even when the frontman sounds like he’s singing about urinals…

    Heima played at the AFI in Los Angeles this weekend. Awesome experience and a great crowd!! Too bad I missed their concert. Whoever digs Sigur Ros should get it. It’s a great complement to the documentary “Screaming Masterpiece” (w/Bjork, Sigur Ros, Mum…) that came out earlier this year and gives a broad overview of the Icelandic music scene. Go Iceland!!
