SOTD 12.26.09

A perfectly uplifting song for your post-Christmas doldrums, "Boy Lilikoi" is by Sigur Rós guitarist and vocalist Jónsi. Unlike his post-rock outfit's penchant for Hopelandic, a gibberish version of Icelandic that is utilizes the voice as an instrument rather than a means of delivering lyrics, Jónsi as a solo artist sings in English. However, the watery, ethereal quality to the music that defines Sigur Rós is maintained here, which results in a pop number that boast a distinct post-rock sensibility. Expect this as track number four of Jónsi's upcoming solo debut, Go, which will be released the week of March 22, 2010.
