Folk music can be like candy apples. They both have a bright, glossy sheen on the outside that makes you want to sink your teeth into its sweetness. But on the underside, you find something quite different - the tart, unexpectedly delicious tang of a saccharine facade.
Oh, how we love an acoustic set. The fizzle and crack of an amp can never beat the intimate sentimentality of an unplugged band - especially when they're playing in a lounge room strewn with fairy lights.
For those of you who missed out on tickets for our world-first Sigur Ros listening party last night at the Melbourne Planetarium - never fear! You can listen their new album Valtari in full here online tonight at 7pm!
