Watch Sigur Rós on The Simpsons
Last night’s episode of The Simpsons, titled “The Saga of Carl,” found Homer, Lenny and Moe embarking on a trip to Iceland to hunt down Carl, who escaped the country with a winning lottery ticket. As expected, Sigur Rós made their anticipated cameo as local Icelandic townsfolk, while Björk also made a brief appearance in all her swan dress glory.
Viewers were also treated to snippets of Sigur Rós’ music in a few scenes (including their own rendition of the show’s theme song for the end credits). According to band, with this episode, they’ve written and performed more original music than any other outside band in Simpsons history. Scroll to the 11:15 mark to see Björk, 17:20 for Sigur Rós and 10:30 for some great lopapeysa sweaters.
