But its true. 2008 is here. Hangovers are ending, work is trying to get back in full swing, and thankfully top ten lists are finished. (Mine lasted a bit longer than i wanted....but whaddya gonna do....)
I hope everyone had a fantastic New Years and that you have a great 2008. But its time to get off our asses and get back to normal. The holiday induced haze is over, and its time for Radio KGB to have its presence felt in the New Year. So, here I am...making the first of many posts in 2008. There's no real substance to this post.....just a few songs. Call them the Songs of the Week if it even makes you feel better.
Sigur Ros - I Gaer: If you don't know about or haven't at least inquired about these guys yet....shame of you. They're Icelandic and I've heard their live show is one of the most magnificent things you will ever see/hear/experience. This one has a bit of a Pink Floyd anthemic ring to it. I've been a fan since I first heard "Sven G Englar" off their 2001 album Agaetis Byrjun. This song finds itself on their latest "album" Hvarf/Hein. But I say "album" because it only has 5 songs accompanied by 6 most likely badass live cuts. I don't have the album yet, but that's nothing a Christmas Itunes giftcard can't fix.
Doesn't look very icy to me.....Actually, the non-Pink Floyd portion of the song reminds me of another really good song by the Eels. This one:
Eels - Trouble With Dreams
So, I think this gets 200izzle off to a fair enough start. Until later......
