It's like going to church, without all the praying. Jónsi & Alex
, the side project of Sigur Rós' Jon Thor Birgisson, makes good use of angelic choir vocals, which hum warmly over a gradual build of celestial electronics. The group is a partnership between Birgisson and Alex Somers and they released their debut, Riceboy Sleeps
, this summer after five years of recording together.
Check out the song "Boy 1904"
posted originally to Gorilla vs. Bear
, the site that noted the song features "the only known recording of the last ever castrato singer." It's such a pretty tune it'll evoke a holy music spirit no matter your religious affiliation.
