I’ve got a lot of half-finished blog ideas and things written, but honestly, the last couple days I’ve felt a bit worn out and needing some inspiration.
Enter “Go”, the new album from Sigùr Ros lead singer Jónsi, which was just released yesterday. I’ve blogged before about my love of Sigùr Ros’ music and how it moves me. I won’t rehash all that, but you if you haven’t read that post yet or heard their music, you are really missing out. Sigùr Ros hails from Iceland and Jonsi sings mostly in an unintelligible, responsive language called “Vonlenska”, which is translated as “hopelandic”. I know, pretty dope, right!? There are actually a lot of English lyrics on “Go”, which is pretty cool when contrast with the “vonlenska”.
“Go” is brilliant and has been infusing me with mad inspiration. The album is stunning! The harmonies, the rhythms, the musical textures… it’s an incredible work of art. The album is vivid, bursting with creativity and teeming with life!
It sounds like beauty.
It sounds like Spring.
It sounds like hope.
It sounds like redemption.
I wanted to share the video for the song “Go Do” with you. I know it won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, but for the rest of you, hope you enjoy and are inspired!
For a limited time, you can purchase “Go” at Amazon MP3 for just $6.99. I recommend getting on that. 🙂
What is inspiring you today?
