Iceland, 2012, ambient /post-rock / ambient pop
Sigur Rós – Valtari: 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.
