Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi brings “hopelandic” to California (and Coachella!)

jonsi tour 2010 at coachella singer of sigur ros

i can’t tell you how impressed i am with the upcoming album by jónsi. it’s like hearing Sigur Rós all over again for the very first time, only upbeat and full of life and a bunch of lame shit like that. he’s just announced his 2010 US tour, and he hits Cali a couple other times in Berkeley and San Fran. check out the full schedule at his site here. more importantly, you’ll notice his name on the updated Coachella flyer right next to De La Soul on Sunday’s schedule. Sigur Rós’ debut at Coachella way back when was utterly disastrous, but it’s good to see that they’ve since made amends. also, Definition: Hopelandic: A made-up language consisting of gibberish words. shit, turns out we’ve been using Hopelandic here on WTTD for more than a year now.
