In this thread we ask RMers to tell us more about a band we are interested in but know little about or have heard little of their material. RMers have a vastly ranging taste in music, and hopefully they can clue us into material we should know better.

Anyway, I’ve known of Sigur Rós for the better part of 20 or more years, and I’ve really appreciated the very few songs I’ve heard (none of which I could name, and not because I don’t speak Icelandic), but I think this could be a band that I probably would love a lot if I ever gave them a chance, but for no real reason, I never have spent time checking them out. I’d love if someone could point out a few songs I have to hear (maybe five or so).

You get the point. Ask about a band, get recommendations.

Yes! Thank you, LMS! Are there live versions or videos that are superior?

It’s 3:10 AM now, and I might start anyway. I really have wanted to get more familiar with Sigur Rós forever.

A lot of the time they're not really singing about anything, just making sounds. And then some other times they are singing about elves and fjords and shit. Don't worry about it

The song "Staralfur" (the one about the elf) is cool and it does a nifty trick where the strings sound the same forwards and backwards, like a palindrome. Also it is pretty

That’ll be next. But I won’t forget about LMS’s original five.

Speaking of which, I’m not as big of a fan of Glósóli as the first two, even though it is a solid track, especially the last minute or so. The first two he listed are just really, really superb.

Great list, LMS. You’ve certainly piqued my interest at a new level. Thank you.
