(   )

                              sitting in the gathering dusk with Sigur Rós on the stereo

                              the sounds of the children at play on the street diminish

                              a day, a week, spent in mild frustration

                              Jónsi's falsetto shapes the shadows

                              another day, another year

                              rolling by faster now

                              take pause

a bit too advanced for my taste, but then I'm a rock'n'roll rebel at heart...

Kristín- I don't know if they are "advanced", their compositions are somewhat simple in construction, but the effect of their music on me, in a darkened room or concert hall is most profound. Certainly not for every taste, but when they get it really going with Amiina- whew! How cool is it that two of my favorite groups play together!
