Artist of The Week: March 23rd, 2010
03/24/10 at 01:21 AM by Keagan Ilvonen
Jonsi



Since Sigur Ros is on a break we will have to wait for the glorious Icelandic rockers to grace our ears, but luckily for us their eccentric front man is hard at work creating music. While it may not have the complete atmospheric feel of his band's, his solo work is still worth of your attention for various reasons. Go is Jonsi's first solo release although he isn't the only one to work on the album. His boyfriend Alex helped out too as various others. Although this album has a distinct sound that differs from Jonsi and Alex's album that was released last year. The spirit and body that runs through every song on this album is phenomenal. If a smile doesn't come to your face while listening to Go I'm worried for your emotional state. As for Jonsi, the man has proved that as long as he is in music he can do no wrong. Slow, fast, depressing, uplifting, the man can do it all. Some day when we look back at the music of our generation Sigur Ros and Jonsi will be celebrated, but will also be remembered as criminally underrated at the same time. This is special and it [strikeout]deserves[/strikeout] NEEDS to be heard.
