I don't know what this word means.
A couple weekends ago I saw Sigur Rós in concert for the second time at the Tower theater in Philadelphia. It was particularly special because they played stuff off of their new, soon to be released (at the time) album, "Takk...".
After the concert, I couldn't wait for this album to come out.
And now, here I sit, far too late (early?) on a workday listening to this album for the third time, and still getting chills from certain bits of the music.
I still don't know what "Sæglópur" means. What I can tell you is that it's the 6th track on "Takk...", and it's a great song. It might be the best song this band has ever written.
This is music to do great things to. This is music that is poignant and hopeful.
This is exactly what we need.
