Listening to: Jonsi

"Go Do" by Jonsi, a side project by Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi Birgisson

Not only is the music hauntingly beautiful in a celestial and atmospheric way (think Bon Iver but with more instruments and the pace and anthemic drive of Coldplay's Viva la Vida, plus more hope and less melancholy), the video itself is a work of art.

The editing is actually unreal, notice how the cuts and the visuals parallel the music.

Update: So fyi, I went to download the album after watching this video and discovered it's not being released until March 10, but there's another preview track available on his website.  It's equally intriguing and magical.
