A good start to the day - a big stack of homemade pancakes with the family and some freshly brewed, dark roasted organic coffee accompanied by some ethereal music from my favourite Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós.
Please check out their latest offering Hvarf-Heim . Yes, even a collection of their outtakes and live cuts are better than 99% of everything else that passes for music these days! Trust me, it will change your life.
Their music is sublime, the kind that transports you to another place, and is the perfect soundtrack for lucid dreaming or fanciful mental wanderings in the midst of your day. Here are a few samples for you;
