New Jónsi Song Streaming

A few weeks ago, we heard "Gathering Stories," the first track off the upcoming Jónsi-composed soundtrack for the Cameron Crowe film "We Bought A Zoo". Now, there is another new track, titled "Ævin Endar,"streaming on Jónsi's website. His beautiful, atmospheric pop sound like it will fit perfectly with the film. Enjoy!

Reviewed - City and Colour

House of Blues, Boston, MA

Last night, I was lucky enough to be in attendance when City and Colour took the stage in Boston. Dallas Green and his powerful band tore through an hour and a half of their finest, that never included a dull moment. His beautiful falsetto rang throughout the sold-out venue and sounded even more powerful than on record. Hits off his first two albums, Sometimes and Bring Me Your Love, produced the loudest cheers from the fans who had been listening from the beginning, but his new material, from Little Hell, was not far behind. A personal highlight was during three acoustic songs Green played in the middle of the set. Before playing a heart-wrenching rendition of "Body In A Box," he urged the audience to forget about taking pictures, recording, or being able to remember the show later. More important then remembering is experiencing. And boy am I glad I experienced that.
