SIGUR ROS (London Brixton Academy, 09/03/13)

Kjartan may have departed to focus on his young family, but Sigur Ros' peerless Icelandic majesty thankfully remains undiminished. “Vaka” is as beautiful as it's ever been, “Olsen Olsen” and it's luscious, swing-swept coda continues to stir the ol' heartstrings , “Hoppipolla” is still a marvel despite being overplayed to death by BBC documentary makers, and “Untitled 8” will forever be the greatest live song on Earth. What a perfect way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my first ever gig.
