i have to admit i've never been a true true bjork fan but this album is the one i've liked the most from start to finish on a first listen. it makes me think a lot about the ocean and those duets with antony are both brilliant works of art.

the video is probably going to future a lot of scenes with björk stumbling through woods and shit.

it has trees and shit, and a giant head of björk though.

Bjork Disses Bob Dylan, Plans Tour
Source: Rollling Stone

“Sometimes the recording of the album is just the beginning,” says Bjork when asked about her upcoming world tour, which has her trekking across Europe for the outdoor festival circuit. “You don’t know which song is going to grow and change after being played very, very many times.” The live versions of the songs from her awesomely experimental new disc Volta may very well sound different when she circles back to play the Austin City Limits in September. At the fest, Bjork will share the stage with none other than Bob Dylan, which got us talking about whether she’s excited to share the stage with the big man. Not so much: “I’ve never really gotten into him,” she says. “His voice is too nasal. And it’s like literature music. Quite boring three-chord structures serve as a bed for words. I’m too much of a music lover for that to happen.” This isn’t the first time the sprite has expressed her distaste for rock music, but dang! Them’s fighting words! We sooo predict a Bjork-Bob smackdown. You heard it here first.

Björk Rips into Kiwi

Björk has given new meaning to the phrase "thunder from Down Under."

The pint-sized Icelandic singer attacked a newspaper photographer in New Zealand Sunday after he attempted to get a few shots off upon her arrival at Auckland International Airport, per local media reports.

New Zealand Herald shutterbug Glenn Jeffrey told his country's Press Association news agency that he had simply snapped a few pictures of Björk when she all of a sudden grabbed him and ripped his T-shirt.

"As I turned and walked away she came up behind me, grabbed the back of my black skivvy and tore it," Jeffrey, 25, said. "As she did this she fell over, she fell to the ground."

"At no stage did I touch her or speak with her," he added.

Jeffrey said that the "It's Oh So Quiet" songstress didn't say anything, but that he could hear her male companion saying, "B, don't do this, B, don't do this."

An airport spokeswoman told reporters that there is video footage of the incident in case police request it. (But in case they don't, you can still see it on YouTube.)

Jeffrey has spoken to the cops, but as yet it's unknown whether any further action will be taken.

"I don't see being assaulted as I'm working as a press photographer as an acceptable thing," Jeffrey said. "If anybody assaults anybody you have the right to a legal recourse, whoever they are."

Per the Herald, Björk also went postal on a reporter in 1996 when the hapless journalist tried to ask the 12-time Grammy nominee's then-10-year-old son Sindri a question. The Dancer in the Dark star later apologized and no charges were ever filed.

The allegedly volatile chanteuse is in town to perform at the Big Day Out music festival on Friday. The annual event sets up shop in both New Zealand and Australia and she is among the artists set to appear in both countries. Other headliners this year include Rage Against the Machine, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem.

hey pubrick, you better the leave the camera at home unless you wanna get BJÖRKED THE FUCK OUT.

the "It's Oh So Quiet" songstress

haha, they could've used a better song to point out the irony here. it's funny to get attacked by the "All is Full of Love" songstress.

i don't think the video's online yet. in the meantime: Björk Song - Matt Besser.

Still need to sit with this for a while but it's pretty good. String and beat driven, very emotional. It doesn't match any of her hat-trick albums (Post-Homogenic-Vespertine) and folks say it's a kind of dark Vespertine with hints of Homogenic. This comparison makes sense due to the strings, melodic ideas and emotional honesty of the album but overall I don't think they're entirely appropriate. Those albums felt fresh, innovative and a bit poppier. The structures on this record are lengthy and recall the hard-to-pin flow of the previous album. I think my favourite track is the last one. More listens will happen in the future.
