Iceland, 2012, ambient /post-rock / ambient pop

Sigur RósValtari: More ambient than their other releases, this album is more about setting a mood than taking a musical journey through Sigur Rós’ soundscape. Though I don’t spin this as much as Ágætis byrjun, Takk…, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, or Kveikur, I still love this album and the way it helps me relax. This music is a long, slow, sad look at what the band is capable of. It’s like a camera panning over an old battlefield, now overgrown with grass and flowers.

  1. This one, perhaps due to its ambient nature, is definitely one of my least favorite of theirs. Ágætis byrjun, Takk…, and Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust will suffice me.
