the guardian review of 'heima'

the music of iceland's chamber-rock band sigur ros often sounds like one long, plangent outro completing a final album track. but i was utterly captivated by this rockumentary about the series of free concerts the band gave in 2006, throughout iceland (their "heima" or "homeland"), even in its remotest and wildest regions. the band seemed charmingly without ego, quite at ease with the communities who showed up to hear their music, and their creativity and open attitude was at one with iceland's ravishingly beautiful landscape.
