I was browsing some websites and forums last night, and I came across some new, and certainly different Sigur Ros. They are remix’s of Gobbledigook, the first single of their last album Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust.
The first remix is the Gobbledigook (Gluteus Maximus Mix). It strips the vocals and make them bare, allowing them to sound sad and lonely. This is a lot different from the upbeat tribal way that they are used in the original version. It then transforms into a trippy dance craze thanks to the house beat and dark sound effects. The song is literally transformed into an entirely new being.Â The second remix is theÂ Gobbledigook (Flowing Remix Raw & Bare). The remix Â sounds like it should be credited to Animal Collective. Sporatic beats, heavy bass, and disjointed usage of the vocals.
I think house/big beat fans will appreciate this more so than the hardcore fans of Sigor Ros. I recommend listening to this as you areÂ loungingÂ around, trying to get through your Sunday.
