The Tryout: Jonsi
I haven't listened to the whole album yet but this week's tryout is going to be the debut from Sigur Ros's lead singer, Jonsi. I've heard a few songs and am not sold on the album. Seems less like something I'd listen to and more like a soundtrack for commercials. Still, I like SIgur Ros enough to give the album a shot.
In other news, it's been a while since I've seen a trailer try to piggyback on another film's success like "The Solitary Man" does. The Playlist posted the trailer and I was struck by the appearance of the VO guy from (500) Days of Summer. Then, almost on cue, he launches into the "This isn't a story... This is the story..." lines. This lifting aside, the trailer looks like something we've seen before. It might be more interesting seeing this film about a woman. Usually women are given the "I was a housewife, now I want to live" treatment but it would be nice to see the other side of that.
