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.
