björk: voltaic.

Björk delivers a live show that, just like her entire career, is fearless, insane, unbelievable, transformative, undeniably unique, and completely fucking unreal. I was lucky enough to see her Volta tour at Virgin Festival Toronto and it was easily one of the best nights of my life. Beyond the headresses, towers of flames, and tunnels of lasers tracing patterns into the surrounding trees, what I remember most about it is her unflinching, uncompromising, otherworldly voice soaring out above it all.

A few days ago, Björk released the “Voltaic” box set (in 5 different versions, combining DVD, CD, LP, and Mp3), documenting her incredible 2-year long Volta tour. The trailer took me back instantly to the night I saw it and gives me chills. It’s like the best non-acid acid flashback ever.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Plus, as always, the artwork for the set is beautifully designed:
