Named in part after a sister of one of the bandmembers, Reykjavik, Sigur Ros comes all the way from Iceland to bring their brand of ethereal music. Formed in early 1994 while the members were teenagers, the group's first recorded song earned them a deal with Iceland's Bad Taste label. Their sprawling debut LP, 'Von (Hope),' was released in 1997, followed the next year by a collection of remixes, 'Recycle Bin.' They're touring in support of their fifth studio album, 'Me Su i Eyrum Vi Spilum Endalaust (With A Buzz In Our Ears We Play Endlessly).'
