A song a day: Mum - Green Grass of Tunnel
There was that moment in time where it seemed like the most interesting music being made was coming from Iceland. Sigur Ros seemed to be all anyone was listening too (I have to admit that first song off () makes me cry every time I hear it) and Mum had their moment too. The music is so strange and otherworldly but undeniably beautiful. You can't relate to the lyrics but the sentiment speaks more than a clever lyric ever could. Sure it's fragile and gurly but I do love this song. I saw them on this tour and much like my experience with Sigur Ros, I found them deathly boring. You can't fault the records though.
