with buzz in our ears

i  finally bought the latest sigur ros album
Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust and i know i say this about all of their albums, but this really is my favorite one. i can't remember the last time i was this excited for a CD? as soon as i got out of work i raced down to park ave cd's and went strait to the indie section and yanked it off of the shelf. i didn't waste any time dilly dallying in the vintage records and used cd's, the homemade buttons and local art, i went strait to the register, paid, and ripped off that shiny, impossible to open, plastic wrap. 

and as i drove home, with the windows rolled down, i experienced  Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. the sun was shining, the air was rolling beneath my hand out the window. god damn it i felt like a free spirit on the open road again. it was beautiful. 

if you haven't heard this album yet i encourage you to do so (click here for a free stream). i would like to describe it to you, but my simple words would give no justice to the magic this band creates. however, i will say this, i was happy that this album was a bit more upbeat their previous ones. don't get me wrong "nothing song" and everything from ( ) shakes me to my core, but i've been in need of some upbeat inspiration lately. 

if you too need a little extra kick in your life right now, try these guys on for size. or if you are as in love with photography as i am, check out their delux edition Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. eva vermandel is the photographer of their jaw droppingly gorgeous 200 page book which documents their life in the past year on the road - not to mention the short documentary film that is also included.... 

i will be a proud owner of it soon. once i get some money that is.

enjoy all.
