Sigur Ros: Med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalaust
by Sarah Hopper
Publisher's Description
Gorgeously ethereal, minimalistic and adored worldwide, the magical soundworld of the Icelandic band Sigur Rós has enraptured the likes of Brad Pitt, Madonna, Tom Cruise, Natalie Portman, David Bowie, Björk and Moby with its quiet beauty. Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust is a deluxe clothbound companion to the quartet’s fifth album of the same name. It documents the creation of this album-whose title translates loosely as “with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly”-through Eva Vermandel’s informal and intimate photographs, and Nicholas Abrahams’ two DVD films of the band: one a feature-length portrait of the complete recording of the song “Ara Batur” at Abbey Road with full choir and orchestra; the other a 35-minute Super-8 film poem of the band touring and traveling in Iceland, Mexico and America, which includes the filming of the famous “Gobbledigook” video (made in collaboration with Ryan McGinley), tour rehearsals, the early shows on the tour and exclusive band interviews. Each edition is individually numbered and includes a unique strip of 16mm film taken from the “Gobbledigook” video. A unique homage to a great band, Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust offers a revealing portrait of Sigur Rós at work.
