I get it. Euro falsetto, a made-up language, minimalist and ethereal sound, an EP recorded with an Icelandic fisherman. It's all very cool and avant-garde – kinda reminds me of the music you'd listen to while driving around, looking at Christmas lights in your subdivision (admittedly, it's beautiful-sounding – just a shade boring). But while Sigur Rós fans will certainly revel in yet another release of the same vein for the quartet from Iceland, the rest of us are left wondering what exactly the draw is. Frontman Jónsi Birgisson's bigger accomplishment was his fantastic 2010 solo release, Go. Looking for something more along those lines? You're not going to find it with Valtari.
Worth a Listen: "Ekki Múkk"
