As Iceland moves decisively with its provocations of worldwide annihilation (first, the economic collapse; now, literal blackening of the heavens—really, guys?), they do offer us partial amends in the form of Jonsi, lead singer of Sigur Rós, and his solo debut of shady, labyrinthine soundscapes. Go, a multi-collaborative effort with experimentalist Nico Muhly, is not to be confused with Jonsi & Alex, the vocalist’s ambient side project with beau Alex Somers. But the brash, layered production can be confused with Gabriel’s horn, because clearly we’ll all be hearing that soon enough, anyway.
