Sigur Ros Return With New Album (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday Sigur Ros Return With New Album was a top story. Here is the recap: Sigur Ros will deliver their first studio album in 4 years on May 29th with the release of Valtari. We were sent this background on the effort:

The first track from Valtari, entitled "Ekki Mkk," is now streaming on the band's website www.sigurros.com. Valtari will be released on double LP, CD and digital download. Valtari is Sigur Rs's first studio album since 2008's acclaimed Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust, marking the end of their indefinite hiatus. It is either the album they always wanted to make, or the album they almost didn't make, depending on how you look at it.

Taken together, the eight songs on this 54-minute album feel like an alternative musical path the band didn't take after 2002's untitled ( ) album. Frequently bereft of formal structures, and for large stretches of time more atmospheres than songs, the work which the band has described as sounding "like an avalanche in slow motion" offers a counterpoint to Sigur Rs's steady yet unconscious migration towards public acceptance. - more on this story
