current audio obsession: gling-go

There aren't a lot of performers I'd enjoy listening to while they sing in another language, let alone sing to what's essentially big band music. But Bjork isn't like any other singer. Back in 1990, Bjork recorded Gling-Glo, an album of folky jazz classics with a three piece band (mostly drums, bass, and piano), all in Icelandic (save the last cut, which is in English). The result is strangely listenable, and an absolute must-have for hardcore Bjork fans like me.
