Video: Sigur Rós live at MoMA

The full Sigur Rós performance from New York’s Museum of Modern Art in June as reported by Kara Manning in this month’s issue has made its way onto the internets. Elegiacally, it was also Independence Day in Iceland on that day in June when the band performed downstairs in the MoMA building. A rather stunning setlist is laid out below. ‘Gobbledigook’ finally makes total sense.

Your next 46 minutes are right here.

    Roll on Picnic, can’t wait!

  • Phil

    I have to say that’s I’ve never been totally convinced but this sounds amazing.

  • Bernie D

    Oh wow, wow wow. Can’t wait for Picnic now!

  • Hey Nialler, are you sure that setlist is right? I can never remember the names of all the songs, but Gobbledigook is the last one, I’m pretty sure of that. If I am wrong, I heartily apologise!

    They did play those last two but not in the video.

  • Kara Manning

    Actually, there was one more song after Popplagid for the MoMA throngs – All Alright.

  • Needless to say, Sigur Ros is one of my favorite band. It draws me in, every time I listen to it. Even if you’re not a fan of trip hop or electronic music, you will still appreciate this band
