Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Sigur Ros

When: Sun., Sept. 15, 8 p.m. 2013

Because the guys in this Icelandic band sing in their own made-up language, it’s impossible to know just what they’re trying to say. But the songs on their new album, Kveikur, succeed simply because of their textures. Opening number "Brennisteinn" features strange scratching noises and heavy percussion; it sounds like the kind of song you'd hear at a noble warrior's funeral. The group is reportedly touring with an 11-piece band and has revamped the visuals, the last leg of a long world tour that started last year. Should be a stunning show. (Niesel)
