Bjork is one of the hallmarks of contemporary Icelandic and Scandinavian music. And here's a free download featured by Bjork on her official website. This is a track from her single "Hidden Place", which in turn from her 2001 hit album "Vespertine". Quoting from her site, Bjork mentions that:
"'Hidden Place' is sort of about how two people can create a paradise just by uniting. You've got an emotional location that's mutual. And it's unbreakable. And obviously it's make-believe. So, you could argue that it doesn't exist because it's invisible, but of course it does. And it's sort of a one-nil situation."
I've always liked the way she writes and arranges her tracks. Her albums are often very graphic and thought provoking, depicting scenes of distorted sexual acts such as fellatio and vaginal penetration. Despite the unconventional style in many of her tracks, it is still somewhat easy on the listeners' ears. The track "Verandi" featured here highlights Bjork's signature vocals and with that flute and eerie synth loop reminiscent to church bells ringing in the distance and repeating in the background. You will be left feeling slightly disturbed, but never confused after listening to the track.
