Caught this little video on La Blogotheque via Gorilla vs. Bear and loved it off the bat. I love when acts go acoustic, especially when they do it well. Sigur Ros is the kind of group that embellishes really well on simple melodies, so it's pretty cool to hear songs stripped down to their essence. I really dig this video.

For your enjoyment, as well, my second favorite track from Sigur Ros' latest album. Took me a little while to warm to this record, probably because I had absurdly high expectations. This song is undeniably beautiful and upbeat at the same time - I could spin it for days.
