ok ok, so it may not be their best album. But it is brilliant at getting young minifella off to sleep :-P
The songs are fantastic. I only found out about them because of Takk though, so I maybe slightly biased.
I'm not a big fan of the other albums. Maybe I haven't given them enough listens.
i've stuck that promo in the post for you today. you should have it Monday/Tuesday
boring album for me !
at what point did they become an acceptable band, I renember back in the day they were considered a joke.
As far as i remember they have always been adored...
no I renember they came out impressed people then there was a mini backlash, mogwai said 'they're one step away from lord of the rings thats nothing like what we do' and in interviews they were really pretentious talking like they invented post rock, I renember liking sigur ros definately had negative connatations attached a guilty pleasure type thing
well yeah at the time they seemed like the clueless zero cred postrock band, I renember when they started doing well in america hyped by LA celebrities thinking "ha! those fools don't they realise that band have already been laughed out of this counrty". Maybe it was just an NME thing (don't laugh they knew their shit back then"). And don't get me wrong I don't care about indie cred (because I have none)I used to really like them then I saw them live at ATP and got sick of them and have never had the urge to listen to them since, after their set we saw the singer lurking and my drunk friend went up to him in a mock high pitch voice started singing "its yooooooouu-oo-ooooooooouuu" that was quite funny.
called it Braveheart music. Spot on! Just seems a bit cheesy.
Stars of the Lid would be good for putting a baby to sleep.
Mr Brainlove about the start of "Gong".
I think its very good. It made me download Von which was just.... :| ambient noise.
is great !
but agaetis bryjun is best ;)
i find it hard to take any of your comments serious. I think you need to go have a lie down.
that there was effectively a little backlash betwen Agaetys and (). They were tipped to be the next big thing by a lot of stars, so they were mocked by a few indie people...
But since they failed to get big, i suppose it's OK to like them again.
A shame last 2 albums are boring...
Someone renembers. I feel like im on crazy pills!
