Sigur Ros

Arguably one of rock and roll's biggest current phenomenons, Sigur Ros combines lavish, churning emo with ethereal noise and a fluid made-up language. They produce prolific, all-encompassing sound, and their gigs are known for being near-spiritual experiences, if not only to see an electric bass being played with a bow.
