"New" Music: Charles Mingus, Sigur Rós

The spacey Icelandic dream-pop band picked this video, for their song "Fjögur Píanó," as the overall winner of their Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, in which "fans, film-makers, and video directors" had been encouraged to make videos about whatever the songs on their Valtari album made them feel. Anafelle Liu, Dio Lau, and Ken Ngan directed this one, and four more videos, presumably from the band itself, are scheduled to premiere over the next two months. All 12 previous fan-made, band-selected music videos can be seen here.

For a less skin-drippy start to the week, NPR is currently streaming Charles Mingus's The Jazz Workshop Concerts, 1964-65, due out October 30, which is an "assortment of live recordings, some of them previously unreleased," per NPR, that serve as "a monumental example of how a jazz great dedicated his life to his art." It's excellent.

Based on the title I thought this was going to be a Sigur Ros/Charles Mingus mashup mixtape. Now I'm faced with the totally bizarre, seemingly impossible feeling of being disappointed by Sigur Ros and Charles Mingus.

@fondue with cheddar Sorry!!

@Edith Zimmerman It's okay! Once I take my lunch break and get to actually listen to this, I'm guessing all my disappointment will melt away.
