listen to live acoustic set

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

jónsi played three acoustic songs on wnyc radio recently, which you now can listen to below. it’s a good chance to hear how three of the songs from go must have sounded before nico muhly got his hands on them and, in jónsi’s words, made them “explode”.

jónsi plays go do on ukelele (as it was first written), boy likikoi on acoustic guitar and around us on piano. the last track is a particularly interesting listen when compared to the album version, which you will get a chance to hear soon enough.
