Melika Bass: The Latest Sun is Sinking Fast at Hyde Park Art Center

3 weeks agoUnited States / Chicago : A/C

When I read that the post-rock, Icelandic band Sigur Rós commissioned Melika Bass to direct and produce a music video for their composition, "Varðeldur," I wasn't terribly surprised. Bass' archetypical characters and magical components cohere with the subliminal sound that...

The Roundup

We travel from Japan to Iceland for the sounds of Sigur Ros! International Politics Overall - All the focus, if you believe the Israeli narrative, should be on Iran’s alleged nuclear weapon program. However, this is a red herring considering Israel’s nuclear weapons and how insane the leadership is - More drones are being traded across the world with [...]

Iceland in 3D: Photographer’s amazing shots with Lytro’s Illum camera

Iceland: land of Björk, Sigur Rós, and icebergs. But it’s also a place of beauty, according to photographer Chris Burkard. Although the 29-year-old photographer has ventured to Iceland a total of 16 times, Burkard brought a Lytro Illum camera during his visit last month.

Stream Cloud Castle Lake Dandelion EP

7 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

We were big fans of the first two singles from Cloud Castle Lake’s Dandelion EP. In their own distinct ways, “Sync” and “A Wolf Howling” found the Dublin trio conjuring up art-rock euphoria similar to that of Radiohead and Sigur Rós. Those songs and two more — the jazzy dirge “Mothcloud” and the hushed, shivery [...]

Cloud Castle Lake – “A Wolf Howling”

7 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The first song we heard from Cloud Castle Lake’s upcoming Dandelion EP, “Sync,” reminded me of Sigur Rós at their most celebratory. “A Wolf Howling,” the second Dandelion song the Dublin band are sharing, exists in the same wheelhouse, but the way it casts Daniel McAuley’s falsetto against a churning minor-key groove is closer to [...]

Cloud Castle Lake – “Sync” (Stereogum Premiere)

8 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Cloud Castle Lake’s “Sync” begins on that ethereal plane inhabited by the likes of Radiohead and Sigur Rós, with celestial falsetto arching against shapeless moody tones. In time, the song expands into something far more visceral and celebratory (which, to be fair, is a sound both Radiohead and Sigur Rós have pulled off too) — [...]

MoMA to host Björk retrospective in 2015, but is an art museum really the place to recognize such an eccentric character?

I don’t think I’m going out on a limb here: Björk is basically synonymous with Icelandic pop culture (despite the respectable popularity of Sigur Rós), and it’s hard to imagine any factor other than time changing that notion. Sadly,Show More Summary
