Bjork Medulla
Bjork never ceases to amaze me. Ever since the Sugar Cubes the world has had a strange fascination with this little Icelandic pixie with a punch. The last album of hers that I’ve owned was Homogenic and I recall listening to it for hours because its sound mirrored how my life felt. Rolling Stone called Homogenic one of the boldest ‚Äì and most exciting ‚Äì albums of the year. (Since then Bjork has released Selmasongs in 2000 and Vespertine in 2001) Bjork now releases a new album Medulla. Bjork explains, “Medulla basically means ‚Äòmarrow’ in medical language, in Latin. Not just you’re bone marrow, but marrow in the kidneys and marrow in your hair, too. It’s about getting to the essence of something.” Full Review >
