Ekki Mukk (Sigur Ros)

 I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't! Unless, of course, they don't know Sigur Ros. But, after a two-year hiatus, and after Jónsi (the singer) released his own solo album and toured the world with a beautifully artistic set, Sigur Ros has plans to release their 6th studio album this year. Lucky for us, they have released a track with an official video as a little taste. I love it. As many of their songs go, listening to "Ekki Mukk" is like 8 minutes of slow inhalations and exhalations. "Ekki Mukk" is like a musical landscape that slowly unfolds layer after layer into what feels like an emerging morning sun. Its beautiful, its mindful, its evasively articulate. I can hear brief influences from the celebratory sound of Jónsi's album, Go, and also some of the atmospheric sounds from Riceboy Sleeps, the album of Jónsi and his boyfriend, Alex Somers. I especially the love the beautiful and gradual ceasing of sound in the last minute of the track. It leaves you with a feeling of completion and peace. Watch this video and slow yourself down, just like the small boat that sails (or is it flying?) across the screen like a timeline. Enjoy. [youtube]
