I can’t claim any previous interest in Sigur Ros. The solo work of their lead, nicknamed Jonsi, only recently entered my radar, and while I’m not totally enamored with his musical style (yet?), I could listen to his recent NPR interview for days. It figures that he’s gay, but he’s so otherworldly and magical that I suppose I shouldn’t ever consider him to be someone within reach. But he captivates me. Mostly when he’s not singing. Mostly when he’s talking about Billie Holiday.
Part of his new album, Go, was recorded in Connecticut? WTF? In motherf***ing Bridgeport?!
