Sigur Ros – með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust

So joyful and beautiful, in shedloads, at the same time. A proper evolution for a band that were in danger of becoming stuck in a rut. And for perhaps the first time it sounded like music made by people, not some ethereal ‘other’ beings. It was honest and to the point in a way they seemed to have deliberately avoided in the past. The best album of 2008 in my opinion.

in a similar, joyful, icelandic vein:

múm – go, go smear the poison ivy
