Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust
Released on June 24, 2008
Inspired by the unfettered feeling of the acoustic performances filmed during Heima, Sigur Rós
adopted a looser approach in creating their fifth album Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust.
The album consequently is fresher and more human than anything they’ve previously
Rough edges, cracked notes, and the sound of fingers on strings are audible resulting in tracks
(e.g. “Íllgresi”) that prove to be the band's sparsest and most affecting work to date. Worry not
though, plenty of electric guitar can be heard throughout the album ensuring Sigur Rós’
commitment to challenging sonic limitations.
