It's Oh So Quiet

Lately I've been mysteriously drawn towards Icelandic music. No, seriously. Well, there is no escape: having to hear the word Eyjafjallajökull five thousand times a day it's better to put some Sugarcubes in it! I have realized I hadn't listened to Björk in such a long time... and I actually used to be a huge fan of her for a long time, since her techno years until her Alexander McQueen- Nick Knight- Juelie Verhoeven- Vinoodh Matadin collaboration period; then I started listening to other Icelandic bands, like Sigur Rós, Múm or GusGus and for some reason I stopped listening to her. But now I come to think about it, if you forget all the controversy and the newspapermen-spanking, Björk is really quite something: you just have to take a look at some of her pictures to notice it.








Yeah, she is a bit loony; and yeah, she is really cool. And, mind you, she already was cool in her pre-hype years. The proof? Big Time Sensuality, for instance. I still think Debut is my favourite album by her...

  4. Her music is not always my thing, but I do love her style and how she expresses herself. Björk puts so much of herself into everything she does, and I can't help but smile when I see some of the pictures in this post.

  9. I didn't know that Iceland had such a big music scene. I always loved Bjork because she's a true artist to me; and some of her music I like, too.

  12. Debut is one of my all-time favourites. And you know how I feel about her Bachelorette video(if you saw my post, can't recall!) She's a true original, and can give a good beat-down, too!

  17. She is a genius!
    I love Lars von Trier and his movie "Dancer in the dark" is wonderful. But I really think, it would not be the same without BJORK!

  18. Oddly enough, the recent events in Iceland seems to be having the same effect on me as well. I spent the entire day, yesterday, listening to her.. always a treat.
