The swelling maestro to Iceland's Sigur Ros – that band that will make your girlfriend cry with joy – Jonsi Birgisson sidesteps his native tongue, singing most songs in English on his first solo foray, Go. Epically sprawled and ethereal like that of his band, new freedoms show up in space, mostly warm and teased with flute and organic electronic builds by co-arranger Nico Muhly that, paired with Birgisson's angelic hum, will likely make your plants grow. Three harrowing nature-loving folkettes performing under the guise of Mountain Man open, threading harmonies and acoustic guitar with a bit of reverb as its only company. (Gavin Paul)
