This final studio recording before his untimely death in 1999 saw Ananda pushing boundaries yet again, teaming up with eclectic London producer Sam “State of Bengal” Zaman to mesh elements of Indian classical music with breakbeat, hip-hop, and tabla-driven beats in an exhilarating, at times zany, fusion of 60s pop and 90s grooves.
Tonight’s Game Of Thrones is a must-watch, not only because of some huge events that take place but also because Sigur Rós will be scoring some of said events.
Couldn’t resist. Sigur Rós have been part of New Sounds…

Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
Music from hundreds of years ago…
