By Request:
Nick requested I post this one as he was there on the night and wanted to re live the experience but also specifically to listen to the version of Viðrar vel til loftárása they played on the night as he said it was particularly stunning. And of course he was right! Its a beauty. During this tour Jonsi uses a different effects pedal for the distorted feedback which you hear to full affect during the opening few minutes of Viðrar. The Re mastering has given this recording a wonderful lift but it should be noted that Jonsi's voice does appear quite far to the left in the stereo field. Not that this effects the quality or enjoyment of the show but it needs to mentioned. Stephen, the taper dedicated on his notes, this recording to Julie. Thanks to Stephen for his kindness in sharing.

Hi, the yellow pic of Jonsi is one I took at Latitude back in 2008 for the BBC. Please could you add my name and website as a credit. Thanks.
