Spotted this in the NYTimes, Sunday 1-/27:
In skeptical, self-conscious times, Sigur Ros offers reverence without
religion and grandeur without guilt. Its songs are processionals and
elegies, and a single one can stretch as long as 13 minutes on the band's
third album "( )" (MCA/Universal)...due for release on
Tuesday.....(snip)...[In previous albums] Mr. Birgisson sang in Icelandic
about war, elves, sin, salvation and being born. But the eight songs on
( )" are untitled and sung in an invented languages he calls Hopelandic....
Sounds rather interesting.....is anyone familiar?
