[mp3] Sigur Ros - "Gobbledigook"

This one is for those of you who didn’t get enough ass over the weekend. I just learned today that, according to the U.N., Iceland is, per capita, the world’s richest country. How ‘bout that? For all intents and purposes, Sigur Rós should be raking it in. On June 24 in the U.S. the band will release an album and hope to make some money from it. It will have a title you can’t pronounce and be filled with the most intensely gorgeous music of the year (speculation, but seriously).

Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust is that title which, according to Stereogum, translates to “with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly”. Cool. Not so cool is the title of the first single, released today via their website, along with a video. “Gobbledigook” is that title. Not sure what it means in Icelandic (or Hopelandic?), but in English it basically means a big pile of turd. Fortunately the song is anything but. After years of languid, widescreen epics, the band is finally getting its freak (folk) on.

And don’t miss a very not safe for work video that is also available for your viewing pleasure if you like naked folks hopping over logs and stuff.

Goobledigook is the sound horses make when they run!! It's not Hopelandish.

Ahhh....thanks for the head's up. I was just kidding about the Hopelandish comment, no offense meant.
