Artist Sigur Rós
Title Inni
Label Krúnk
Year 2011
Design Art direction and design: Sarah Hopper; cover image: Caroline Robert; photography: Karl Lemieux and Caroline Robert
Music Sigur Rós
Notes Like most things I discovered Sigur Rós late, in fact only last year, but I’ve sought to make up for lost time by listening to them in concentrated fashion for months now. Colour me a huge fan, hence the purchase of their special editions (see ‘Also’ below). This is the last of them, though I am tempted to buy the 12″ of Valtari as it’s such a beautiful image. Hence, also, my journey up to Glasgow last weekend to see them. Glasgow, because I didn’t check the website in time. Tickets for their London concerts were sold out within 10 minutes.

Inni is a live double album and this version consists of two CDs and two DVDs. I’ve watched the concert all through once and parts of it several times. It’s strikingly beautiful because it’s quite abstract and also playful with the addition of unexpected archival footage between songs. I would highly recommend at least watching one of the three videos included below. The film was directed by Vincent Morisset, assisted in post-production by Karl Lemieux and edited by Nick Fenton. Details here.

Inni is a wonderful piece of work for fans, consisting as it does of the aforementioned silver discs, a one-sided 7″ single, enamel badge, a photograph of each band member, pieces of light sensitive paper for people to create and submit their own art back to the band and even a fragment of the band’s clothing (!) – all neatly fitting into a 7″ box. Here’s the online gallery for the ‘ljóspappír competition‘.

Sigur Rós are one of those handful of artists whose music evinces a remarkable sense of warmth and generosity (the only other two that occur to me are Harmonia and Penguin Cafe Orchestra, though I’m sure there are others) and I’m grateful to them for their company through difficult times.

I mean, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can fix when you werent too busy searching for attention.

  12. Can I just say what a comfort to discover a person that actually understands what
    they’re talking about on the net. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people need to read this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular because you most
    certainly possess the gift.

    and now each time a comment is added I get
    several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Many thanks!

  23. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
