Sigur Rós on The Simpson

For all you Iceland-o-philes out there (and of our ranks I know there are many), Sigur Rós is going to be on The Simpsons on May 19th, and have written their own version of the theme song for the episode. I. AM. SWOONING. And their cartoon doppelgangers are pretty amazing.

Jónsi looks adorable here.

I’ve seen Sigur Rós live 3 times, and they are one of the most magical and engaging bands I have ever seen. The first time I saw them was October 3rd 2001, less than a month after 9/11 and at a time when Americans were still heartbroken and lost (before we became the stormtroopers of doom, that is). Even though the show was in a tiny, dingy little venue, the show was so uplifting, intoxicating, and lush, it was like being in the presence of elves- and I don’t say that lightly or flippantly. I love the fact that they are willing to show their more humorous side, seeing as I found a lot of their more recent stuff a bit pretentious (I couldn’t tell if the short film project they just did was supposed to be arty or absurd. Maybe both. Meh.)
