Bjork in the New York Times Magazine

Bjork is releasing a new album (actually, the mp3s seem to already be available). The NYT did a profile of her:

The Peculiar Genius of Bjork

Of course, I'm getting that album. I got into Bjork via the video for "It's Oh So Quiet" off of her second solo album. I wasn't a big Sugarcubes fan (still not, really), but when I saw that video I went out and purchased both Debut and Post. I haven't looked back from there. They could pretty much mail me any non-remix new CD of Bjork's like a subscription. I'm going to want it, and even if I don't really bond with the album I want to listen to it at least a few times.

She's someone who really deserved the term unique - there isn't anyone out there quite like her.

  1. Love Bjork, "It's Oh So Quiet" and "Venus as a boy" are two of my favorites from her. She has one of those voices, you know? As someone with Synesthesia (audio > tactile), I can tell you her voices feels like I'm under warm sheets in the winter time. That slightly chilled at the extremities, but warm everywhere else feeling. It's actually quite pleasant for me to hear her sing and she's great live (not many artists can say that).
