: I recently got turned on to an Icelandic band called, Sigur Ros. They
: opened some shows for Radiohead. Amazing. Very cool sound.
the album's name is _agaetis byrjun_, and i wish i could find a copy. they're getting wined and dined by the big labels now thanks to the radiohead gigs, though, so i have a sneaking suspicion it'll get re-released one of these good days. they kinda sound like the cocteau twins gone post rock. another post rock band i like (albeit without the whole shoegazer vibe) is godspeed you black emperor!, whose recently released album, _raise your skinny fists like antennas to heaven!_, has, like sigur ros' cd, the whole bursts-of-sonic-brilliance thing going for it.
