Cigar Ros Vs Sealion Dion : Blum Blum Bambalo

Extraordinary, stupid and beautiful

There will always be a place in heaven for people who think differently. In an excellent week for singles, 'Bium Bium Bambalo' has the honour of being the most extraordinary, stupid and beautiful of the lot. A limited CD-only release that cleverly fuses the windswept bombast of Sigur Ros' post rock with the vocal and melody from Celine Dion's titanic Titanic anthem 'My Heart Will Go On', it?s as magical and unlikely as the year?s first great bootleg, Girls On Top's Whitney/Kraftwerk confection, 'I Wanna Dance With Numbers'. What's more, both acts seriously benefit from such good-humoured alchemy.
